GARDEN TEXTURES – THE WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE

Photo Challenge: TEXTURE


I take a lot of texture photos. From a compositional standpoint, they are interesting, but often look more like wallpaper or the beginning of a fabric design than a proper photograph. Flowers, fields, and repetitive design can do the job. I also enjoy textures in monochrome.

The texture of the stems and the pods of what were the garden’s pink Columbine. Sometimes, though, the most amazing texture is in macro, where the lily is both form and texture for the photograph.

    • It’s easy to forget to change lenses, too. I have quite few lenses, but I usually shoot with whatever is already on the camera. Laziness probably … but this time, it was obvious I needed something else! Thanks!
