Found Textures

I've been on vacation for 10 days and so my posts here have been non-existent and my creations almost so.  I did a little tangling (will show in another post) but mostly used my camera to feed my creativity.  We were in Vermont being "leaf peepers" and enjoying the stunning autumn show.  If you'd like to see some of my photos of that great trip, you can see them on my flickr page or on my photography blog, PurkeyPages.

One of the first things I checked on my return is Kat's newest tutorial and challenge - the theme is one of my favorite subjects: Found Texture.  I love textural subjects though I struggle sometimes to show the texture to best advantage.  So here are a few of my favorite recent "texture" images.



A door to the capital building in Montpelier, VT.


I don't even remember where I saw this great wall but I had the idea that the textures would be perfect in a digital collage some day.

The texture on these fall leaves really captured my eye.

From smoothest water to rough water edge to rocky sand beach, a wealth of subtle textures (Alki Beach, Seattle)

I have lots of rusty pictures so I just picked a recent one that I particularly liked the way the shadows play up the edges.  I could go on and on, but in the interest of keeping your interest, I'll stop.  Thanks again Kat for so effectively explaining and demonstrating some great ideas for photographing texture!

Be sure to visit Kat at Kat's Eye View to see even more wonderful views of texture.

  1. Oooh love texture....love them all but especially love the top one, the look of weathered wood. I've never gotten any great texture photos but I'd love to try. :)

    Have a great weekend!

  4. I'm loving your textures Terrie! I too have lots of rusty texture to sort through. I love the last one, the way the shadows highlight and show the depth of that peeling. Wonderful. I'm so glad to have you link in to Exploring with a Camera again - yay!
