Pursuing Textures…

This past week’s challenge was texture.  So on Sunday afternoon I grabbed my camera with the intention of seeking out textures.

When you pay attention it’s amazing how much diversity there is in common day objects.  Materials that we are around each day…all of them with their unique texture or pattern.

All of the photos below where shot in and around the community commons area in Wilkesboro using my Canon 24mm, 2.8 lens.  It can focus well at a very short distance and it is the best lens I have for capturing close-up images.

Brick with blistering paint on the wall of the Wilkes Heritage Museum.  This building was originally constructed in 1902 as the Wilkes County Courthouse.

More Pin Oak leaves.  I also liked the different colors and textures of the paved surface

This image may be more pattern that texture but…these stacks of chairs caught my eye and I couldn’t resist photographing them.

Fire Pit…I was not only drawn to the texture of the rocks but also the stark contrast between the rough dark rocks and the smooth bright stainless steel.

One more image from this outing.  I just had to get a photo of these berries.

 

As always, thanks for viewing my photos…I hope you enjoyed them.
