Friday Shoot-Out Texture

Sorry I am late!! Here are my pictures for this week's theme of texture. I loved this choice and really like the idea of trying to capture texture through photography. Texture is typically a tactile sense so the job of the photo is to let the viewer have the tactile experience through a visual element. That is the real challenge for the photographer. I know that I did not master this and will continue to work in this area.

I really love photography and love being part of the friday shoot out to see everyone's different styles. I do have my favorites, too, of the friday shooters. Some of you shooters do some incredible work!! One question I have is what is the ideal number of photos for these posts? Most of the time I do 3 to 5 but would do more if that is what would work better.

The photos I have included are, a "by the side of the road" shot that I thought had interesting textures, a "trees" shot because I think that trees have such varying and interesting textures, a shot from the National Zoo in Washington because seals skin are interesting in terms of texture, and a shot of water that had an interesting texture in its dips and currents. I can't wait to do more! Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!!


  1. The first and last ones are my favorites.

    I don't think it matters how many photos you post, as long as you have fun doing what you are doing, then it works beautifully.

  2. The first one is my favorite. I'm not sure of the ideal amount of pictures to post, what ever works for you. I always think i post too many

  3. Beautiful pics! I think your love of taking pictures of flowers is like my love of taking pictures of trees -- except mine all end up looking alike haha. This tree image is just splendid :)
