Stripes can be found almost anywhere especially in nature e.g. angelfish.
Architecture, clothing, fences, flags, furniture, shadows, venetian blinds,
the grills of vintage cars, timber cladding.
Stripes can be straight or curved. Vertical, horizontal, or oblique.
Converging stripes make for very interesting patterns. They do not
necessarily have to be parallel (think of zebra stripes). Try creating your
own stripes using household items e.g. overlapping items. Possibly you
can incorporate colours and textures.
Preferably the subject (stripes) should fill the frame and generally should
be in sharp focus.
If you need inspiration Google “Stripes” (under Images) and see what
other photographers have come up with!
Be imaginative, creative, and have fun.
