Weekly photo challenge – textures

This week’s challenge asks us to look through our photos for those that show textures.

Photography is a primarily visual medium, but we can experience it with more than one sense. This week, focus on the tactile element of the objects you shoot, whether it’s one distinct quality — softness, smoothness, graininess, or any other texture you find interesting — or a combination of several within one frame.

On a walk along the lake shore near where we live, I was really taken with some casuarina trees that had roots protruding from the soil. The roughness, roundedness and moss coverings of these roots were all beautiful, and I couldn’t resist taking photos of them.

  1. That third photo looks like an animal emerging from the ground.

  2. Twisty roots, Linda, and textures everywhere. Amazing what you see when you stop and pay attention.

  3. Damn, I wish I was more of a photographer! The age and experience of those roots shows in every twist, hump and turn. Nice capture, Linda!

  4. I’m a sensory description freak and these photos are wild prompts! Thank you for sharing them.

  5. I agree with Sharon: You make photos come alive, going in for the closeup, also mimicked in your squinty-eyed writing, a very good thing, Linda.
