Weekly Photo Challenge: Texture

Texture: that which we touch, which touches us, which we feel.  Texture lets us know we’re alive, we’re here, we’re present and presently interacting.  Texture teaches us that the world is sameness and contrast – smooth, cold, rough, warm – and solid as concrete. 

How much do you pay attention to what you touch and what touches you? 

When you become fully mindful of something’s presence, do you feel more fully alive? 

Have you ever lost the concept of time as you stroked silky fur, or dipped your toes in flowing water? 

Time pales in significance when I am present with something completely.

  1. When I was a docent at our local art museum, I loved sharing the concept of texture with the school children who were touring. I’ve written a poem called texture and have to say that, along with color, this is my favorite element of art. Ergo–I loved your photography! And the black and white ones amaze me. Perfect way to feature texture.

  2. I finally caught up with your blog after an absence of a month or so, and I have to say that I am touched by your presence in your images & words. It has the texture of love. Thank you.
