  1. Fabulous! That feather on the stalk is especially eye-catching. I also really like the top of the metal mushroom. For some reason it reminds me of the world.

    1. Great topic, Jude. I was so pleased when I saw you would be hosting. I was thinking as I collected these that texture is almost the mark of any decent picture.

  2. An awesome and thorough collection of visualizing texture. The close up of the clematis looks like sea anemones. I love the heart “hotel” and the peeling paint.

  3. I had a totally irrational urge to touch everything! The peony was a gasp for the sudden bright beauty of it, but my favorite for spending time on was the lichens on driftwood, which I found very soothing.

    1. That was really remarkable. I admired it in a garden in Florida. I liked the contrast with the one below it, which is from Llandudno in Wales. Although I can see if they just come across as being largely the same, they are quite different for those of us who linger and their textures are different – the washed wood, open and yielding, almost like loofah; the rock, solid and ancient, although you feel you could just pick the fossils out if you were minded to.
