Today I’m participating in Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge and her theme is “texture”. I encourage you to click on each photo to see a larger view. If you like what you see, please subscribe to this blog to receive updates of the new photos I post, usually 3 to 5 times a week.

It can be hard to photograph the texture of a subject. Sometimes you just have to remember or imagine what it feels like in real life to get the idea. Here are a few selections to illustrate various textures, some of them more pleasant than others.

I don’t think you can’t do a photo post on texture without tree bark. I find the patterns and textures of some tree barks wonderful, but I’d hate to scrape my skin on them. 🙂

The trunk of this cork oak tree looks and feels a lot softer than an oak or pine tree trunk.

The manzinata tree bark peels off as the tree trunk and branches grow larger. The soft and curled shavings make for some interesting texture to look at and touch.

Soft textures feel good to the touch. I’ve never touched the fuzzy fur of a lemur but I bet it’s pretty soft. Look how fluffy it looks in the sunshine. By the way, I still have to find the time to share more photos of this lemur and his buddies, who seem to enjoy the San Diego sun tremendously.

Finally you’ve got to admire (but probably not touch) the gelatinous texture of this sea jelly, which allows it to move around the ocean with the current with minimal effort. I do have more photos of sea jellies to show you also, and a funny story to share about that day. More in a later post!

  1. I’m just glad you didn’t snap a picture of my hands. Between the winter weather and my frequent hand washing, there’s definitely some texture there. 😉

    • Trust me, you don’t need freezing weather to get those hands. Super dry weather will do that too. My textured hands are proof of it. Just be glad I didn’t take a picture of them!

I'd love to hear what you think about my photos. Please leave your comments below.
