Texture makes our world interesting. Some things are smooth while others are bumpy or have sharp edges or prickly surfaces.
For this week’s challenge, I’ve found two pictures with very different textures. The first is a plain brick wall. As a background, we might notice it a little bit, depending on what the main subject of our image is or is doing. As the main subject itself, we begin to notice individuality in each brick. One may be missing a corner, while another has interesting striations on it, and another might be a darker or lighter shade of color than its neighbors.
For my second photo, I’ve picked a particularly popular photo spot in Coyote Gulch near Escalante in Southern Utah. This waterfall has been photographed by hundreds or possibly thousands of people. The first time I saw a photo of it, I wondered if the rock was hard or soft silt. It’s hard, though it has a creamy look to it, especially through the texture of the water.
IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A PHOTO OR TWO THAT ARE HAVE A UNIQUE TEXTURE OF SOME KIND.
Have fun experimenting with all sorts of textures found in nature or your closet. Then blog them and post a link to your masterpieces here.
Everyone is welcome to participate, even if your blog isn’t about photography.
Here’s how it works:
1. Each week, I’ll come up with a theme and post a photo that I think fits. You take photographs based on your interpretation of the theme, and post them on your blog (a new post!) anytime before the following Thursday, when the next photo theme will be announced.
2. To make it easy for others to check out your photos, title your blog post “A Photo a Week Challenge: (theme of the week)” and be sure to use the “postaday″ tag.
3. Follow nancy merrill photography so that you don’t miss out on weekly challenge announcements.
