Photographer Jared Lim has an knack for capturing colourful patterns around the world, and they make for some eye-catching photos in his series Urban Exploration. As he told MyModernMet, the project is a work in progress that's spanned many years.
The Singapore-based Lim travels for work, and over the course of his trips, he's culled images from all over the world:
Since most of the places I travel to are major cities, architecture is the prevailing theme. I have loved geometry since I was a kid. Even when I was young, I loved to create repeated patterns and designs at school.
For example, here's one called Origami, taken from the facade of a building in Melbourne, Australia:
Check out the curves in the roof of the Sydney Opera House:
Or the symmetry of this building in Nagoya, Japan:
And the fading gradient of the colours of these chairs in a Beijing stadium:
As well as the organised green and yellow blocks on this place in Adelaide, Australia.
