For today’s post we were all tasked with finding images that personified our vision of texture. We certainly could agree on one thing: we all liked to photograph textures in its many forms. Since I like to process in black and white I’m always looking for the rough, multi-faceted, contrasty subjects. Yet, I love the smooth, sensuous look of stillness, be it glass or water.
Sue starts us off with a varied look from architecture to found objects. And, as you’ll see, we all like to dabble with adding textures to images to change the mood or add to the story.
Sharon has the gift of using motion to add texture as well as an eye for the abstract.
And I am frankly all over the place when it comes to texture.

I love how some of these images could as likely be an abstract painting. That you don’t have to know exactly what it is to enjoy it. Those of you who are photographers, I know that you already, consciously or unconsciously, look for textures around you. I invite everyone else to be a little more mindful when you are about in the world at what the variety of textures add to our visual experiences.
