Textures: The daily Post Photo Challenge

says: Photography is a primarily visual medium, but we can experience it with more than one sense. This week, focus on the tactile element of the objects you shoot, whether it’s one distinct quality — softness, smoothness, graininess, or any other texture you find interesting — or a combination of several within one frame.

  1. Great photos for this challenge. You chose some interesting textures and colours, as well as designs. I never knew rhino horn looked like that close-up! Thank you for sharing that.

    1. Thank you! It is a tree trunk with thorns like rhino horns on it. It is the trunk of a Kapok-boom in SA

  2. Dankie ons het daardie boom in Hazyview gesien en ek het gewonder wat word dit genoem. Ek sal ‘n blog oor daardie uitrafelende tou kan skryf!

    1. Daar is heelwat Kapokbome in en om Potgietersrus. Hul is meestal eerste om te begin blom sodra winter pad gegee het. Daardie tou het juis my aandag getrek omdat dit n stokou boot vasgehou het aan die kaai. Boot was nog in werkende toestand maar baie verweerd. Die tou kan beslis n verhaal vertel oor hoekom hylyk soos hy lyk.

      1. Oh that is so lovely, Ineke. I didn’t realise your workplace was in such an idyllic location. Do you still quilt?

        1. I enjoy every moment of it. My sewing machine is not in a working state anymore. I still need to finish off my last quilt. I borrowed my daughter in law’s machine but still have not completed it because the last holiday was only 2 weeks- no machine work was done. Maybe in December! During the term, I’m usually not in the mood or there isn’t time to sit down and do it( at my age my body tells me that I don’t have that much energy anymore)

                1. The pools are heated. I thought half an hour is a bit long. She was cold and crying at the end when she got out of the water. It went well. I’m going to put some photos in a post

                    1. I know, but who am I to know anything, ha ha. A Dad isn’t a mum too. He just opens her up takes her swim suit of without covering her. I covered her with the towel and she felt better.
