Harmony in textures

If I could see the world with the eye of an artist, then I’d see the pleasing curve of a stone or the texture of sand dunes in the moonlight.

As it is, I’m happy to make do with the beautiful wake a single duck can create

And the harmony of swirls, shapes and colours in a setting sun at the end of a glorious summer’s day.

What textures do you enjoy in your life?

  4. You DO have an artist’s eye!! I enjoy seeing textures and shapes intertwined with one another which black and white photography showcases very well.

  7. Beautiful…you surely have the eye of an artist…and the heart too…presently I am enjoying the texture of snow…we are kinda snowed in today and likely tomorrow too with severe negative temps. Today we will decorate the tree, do some baking, play some games and watch some movies so I will enjoy these things as well. Happy weekend. XX

    Your photos are lovely as usual. Wow that frost covered tree sure looks Christmassy.

  13. The colors are amazing Fi! I love watching ducks and — although I’d never quite thought of it that way — the textures of my life are those of nature as well. I love how your well-chosen words always give me something new to think about.

  34. And who gave you the permission to label yourself “not artist”. If you are not an artist, I don’t know who is.

    And it is getting monotonous I know, but I just have to say “Fantastic photographs”.

    The first is perfect in its symmetry, the second is perfect in its lack of symmetry.
