Touchy Feely Textures

“Little moments can have a feeling and a texture that is very real.” ~ Ralph Fiennes

Re-working a previous post on textures in time for this week’s WordPress Photo challenge because what’s life without a little variety? It’s interesting as well how we can take the things we look at for granted, meaning it’s only when we get up close and personal through a camera’s (or phone’s) lens that we truly see life at a much deeper and sometimes more meaningful level.

Do you agree? What are some of the textures in your life right now? Share your story and let’s start a conversation 🙂

    1. Ha ha ha – sorry about that! Should have actually taken a photo of the entire frame which encircled a beautiful big mirror 🙂 Thanks for stopping by, and for showing that perception of a texture can indeed be interesting …


  1. Lovely textures Gale and I like your title. As a tactile person myself, I enjoy touching texture.
    Love the leaf also… is that a mulberry leaf? …And the cute little snail on the rail.
    Thanks for visiting me also 🙂


    1. I am honestly not sure what kind of leaf it is but my son planted this little stalk of a plant that mushroomed into a beautiful bush which graces the side of our house. The leaves are various shades of deep green, yellow or a combination of both green and yellow; really really pretty. Thanks for taking the time to comment and for giving me a ‘look up’ – come again soon 🙂 And of course, I plan to visit you again soon too.

  2. Bravo! Enjoyed the textural feeling of the photos. I think you made the correct decision of not totally photographing the chair BUT left the viewer’s eyes attracted by the pic and curious about what the object was that you captured in your lens. A very intriguing and creative photo technique. Again, kudos on your photos. 🙂


  3. So many textures to choose from in our world, aren’t there? I think the leaf is my favorite, so green and full of life. The snail on the weathered wood takes a close second, though.


    1. Agreed! There were so many different options that could be chosen to illustrate textures that you got lost in trying to decide what was a true representation. A truly fun challenge.


  4. Beautiful textures. Everything has texture and it can be smooth too, they need not be rough as you’ve shown. My fave is the snail as it crawls on the rough old wood. Thanks for the visit.


  5. Beautiful shots! I especially like the snail on wood. I love the look of weathered wood. How cool that the lines in the shell and wood were both running parallel.
