      Textures are everywhere, buildings, landscapes, close-ups of most subjects… make textures the subject of your shot!
      Rough, smooth, soft, spikey ….. etc.!

      Honeycomb tafoni, the result of wind and saltwater acting on sandstone, typically found on inclined or vertical rock faces along the ocean. This view; about two meters across.

        I also go for the mushrooms the most. It’s not only the textures, it’s the shapes, the tones and the layering too. It’s wonderful Leanne!

        Agree with the above comments. I have come back to this a few times, Elin. If I didn’t know what this was about (from you telling us) I would say that something mystical is happening! Something about the way the man on the left has his hand raised, like he is casting a spell. It is a very interesting shot.

        Fabulous Graham!! It reminds me of an anemone in a reef.

      • #422492
        Graham Hart
        Participant

        Alas, it isn’t natural colour guys. Its actually a succulent ground cover plant which I edited to look like an underwater sea anemone. The original shot had great shapes and textures which is what initially attracted me to the subject but it lacked punchย  so I did a little editing and came up with the blue theme which added to the depth of the image.

        I googled the plant and I think its some sort of Pachyveria/Pachyphytum plant. here’s the original shot taken with a mobile phone.

      John’s broken abandoned textile mill reminded me of our recent visit to Ellis Island in New York Harbor. We took the Hard Hat Tour of untouched buildingsย  (the hospital, infectious disease wards, staff living quarters) Millions of immigrants were processed through Ellis Island and it is all quite a story. Contrary to what I thought, these future citizens were given the best of care.ย  This room took my breath away. Perhaps you can imagine what it was.

          Elin, this is about as far from klezmer (which I don’t really like), as possible. It’s a drum which can be played while it’s sitting on a stand or slung over a shoulder with the strap and cradled under the arm.

        Nice.ย  Has that abrasive, itchy feeling to the textures.

        Soft and eye catching, I like it.ย  Makes my eyes search across the image. Is this some architecture?

      “And to Think That I Saw it on Mulberry Street.” Yes Virginia there is such a thing as a Mulberry tree. Dr. Seuss didn’t make it up. Apparently I’m going through my close up leaf period.ย  ๐Ÿ™‚

      Yesterday I had permission to go through acres of puckerbrush covering upย  old vehicles. This was once a Model A or T Ford; now it’s a rusted, textured sculpture hidden by cockleburrs and any weed imagineable. There is still something eye catching about it, I think.

      Fall transition - A leaf's texture becomes more prominent in the Fall when its nutrient phase changes.

      Nice shot Ron. Lovely contrast of color and no color…
