Texture: Weekly Photo Challenge

I love the textures on these close-up blooms, the soft paperiness of the hibiscus, the contrast between the solid golden centre of the daisy and the fragile white petals, the compactness of the crinkly marigold and the soft feathery fronds of the Hypericum.

And here the glossy ridged tree bark contrasts with the peeling trunk of the Plane Tree, whilst the three textures in the cat photo (fur, granite and wool) combine to make a tactile image.  The scratchy bird’s nest (man made I’m afraid) and the wiry coat and crusted muddy nose of the Kuhn pig are something slightly different.

About Sandra

I used to cruise the French waterways with my husband four or five months a year, and wrote fiction and poetry. Now I live on the beautiful Dorset coast, enjoying the luxury of being able to have a cat, cultivating an extensive garden and getting involved in the community. I still write fiction, but only when the spirit moves me - which isn't as often as before. I love animals, F1 motor racing, French bread and my husband, though not necessarily in that order.

    A lovely variety of textures Sandra, but I do especially adore that pig!


I'd love to hear your views; it reassures me I'm not talking to myself.
