Heaven, I’m in heaven…
Yesterday was a glorious texture day! A couple of weeks ago my friend Julie emailed me, asking if I wanted to go for a photo walk. After coordinating a bit, we settled on yesterday morning. We got out early, just as the morning sun was burning off the fog, and headed to the small town of Philomath. This little town of 5 or 6 thousand is a couple of miles from where I live. We drive through it all the time to head to the Coast and I always say, “I need to come back here and photograph.” So glad I did!
I realized as we were walking around I’ve traded in the stone and stucco of Italy for the brick, wood and corrugated metal of small town USA, but it’s texture all the same. I’m still looking for the “real life still life” scenes that catch my eye. The image above of the bucket is my favorite of the day. The colors and textures are perfect, and that lovely morning light! Heaven.
Julie and I ended our photo walk with a coffee and a chai to warm up, and agreed we need to do this more often. It was so much fun to go out with another photographer! We can’t wait to share the photos and see what we each captured, the differences in our point of view. I loved capturing her in action as well. Oh, the things we photographers do.
But wait! There’s more! I have a bit of other news today, the winner of the set of “Texture” postcards from the Exploring with a Camera: Found Texture link up is… Dina of 4 Lettre Words! Dina is a regular participant in Exploring with a Camera and Ashley Sisk‘s Scavenger Hunt Sunday and I’m excited to send these to her. Thanks to all of you for your participation! Even though our link up on texture is over, I hope you continue to seek texture. You know I will!
