Textured in Stone

cracledrocktexture-4154

Textures, colores, curves, and shapes. The details of imagery. Like a turtle shell, bright and standing out from the dark background surrounding it. Details in nature are so intriguing to me. The only way to really discover it is to stand quietly for a moment. Listen, then slowly scan the area. Study the environment. Use the microscope and zero in. Maybe a color, maybe a texture, maybe just a very slight movement.

In the abstract

Sunlight is never the same. It glimmers through the trees in the mist in this photograph, giving it a somewhat abstract dimension, in a black and white of shadows and trees and mornng sunlight. One of those times when I enjoy playing with aperature and speed and see what develops.

Peacock Abstract

Always take a lot of photos of peacocks when in Florida. Make this one into an abstract. Such exotic colors.  Photography is not a cut and dried kind of thing. But it’s like writing. Research first, know the rules, understand the basics and the equipment, then break or bend them for present the story you want to tell, whether it comes to writing or photographing, or whatever the medium may be.
