Texture all around me

Smooth, bumpy, rough, and lumpy…
Slimy, fuzzy, sharp, and fluffy…

Texture is the way a surface, material, or substance feels when we touch it, but I don’t think you have to touch something to notice texture.  Every time I pick up my camera, I see texture all around me, and as I was looking through my photos trying to figure out what to do for my next week’s worth of posts, I saw texture everywhere.  So, I thought it might be fun to do a series about it.

Tree bark provides my eyes with texture overload but not in a bad way.  There are so many different textures in tree bark, especially on a tree where the bark is peeling like in this photo.  What I see could mostly be described as rough, but I’m sure if I closed my eyes and touched the bark, there would be many different degrees of roughness and also some smooth sections where the bark has peeled away enough to reveal the natural wood underneath.  Do you notice the texture around you?

    A beautiful old white birch. Good texture indeed–and lichens for good measure!

  2. I love taking closeups of bark – all kinds. And rocks, too. I love to get so close you can see shiny bits of mica in the surface. Mmm. Craving picture taking right now!

  3. I never knew you were into photography too!! No wonder we get along so well 🙂
