Create a photograph that features a repeating pattern

I took this photo as my morning train arrived at the platform. I like how the repeating pattern of the tactile tiles on the edge of platform sharply contrasts the blur of the train. This time, I think the inherently poor quality of the camera in my mobile doesn’t necessarily detract from the photograph.
