Aargh! I just realized that I’ve been so undisciplined about posting over the last several months, that I haven’t participated in this photo challenge (which is actually one of my favorites!!) since JANUARY! That’s rather ridiculous.
Well, the bright side is that I’ve now noticed that – and that’s the first step toward whipping yourself back into shape, right? 🙂
So here’s my contribution for this week’s Tuesdays of Texture Challenge!:
Beyond the color of this leaf, I really like its variances in texture. It makes for a surprising lot of photographic detail – with the brittle and chipping at the edges, on down to the soft and supple (and colorful) middle, and beyond. The light shining behind it does a good job of showcasing this, I think.
One thing I like a lot about Tuesdays of Texture is the way it compels me to formally address interesting conundrums – like how to most effectively utilize a visual medium to speak to something inherently tactile. It’s interesting!! It makes me stop and think about what I’m doing – and that deepens my understanding of my own troubleshooting and photographer thought processes.
I can’t believe I haven’t contributed here in so long!!!!
