Feel the texture / by Mario Mirabile

Our latest lunchtime photographic jaunt at work had texture as it theme. The number of names on the photowalkers mailing group has grown to about 10, although a typical outing consists of four or five. Our number includes a couple of very enthusiastic novices, and this week's theme was provided by one of them.

Despite being everywhere, texture is a challenging theme do well. Easy to find, but I think turning it into an interesting image requires some added element. Crusty lichen, flowing lines, a stray leaf or a passing jogger all fit the bill well. Adding texture to texture, perhaps.
