Linda of LIVING IN THE EASTERN WOODLANDS chose the subject of Textures for this week's challenge.
The first two photos were taken from my archives. The stones were taken with my Sony P-200 pocket camera. The feathers were taken with my Sony f717 slr camera.
The rest of the photos were taken this week with my Sony f717! That means my arm/shoulder is now strong enough to help hold this camera... only for short times. Maybe by the end of the month I will be back up to the Sony A700 dslr.
I know I could have used a tri-pod, but with my arm/shoulder being weak it would take a good deal of effort to set one up and as sweet and loving as Frank is I did not wish to ask him for help... he does so much already. Besides lifting the camera is probably good for my arm/shoulder :-)
Frank did help me with this shoot. He found me lots of texture! A few of them I didn't do well with the camera, so they got cut. I did leave the dead bug in even though I'm not that pleased with it :-)
A couple of Northern Cardinal Feathers.... soft and fluffy.
The rough texture of the back of a Window Air Conditioner.
The new leaf of an Elephant Ear Plant. The top part was just uncurling and the bottom part had uncurled. The texture and color is different from each other.
The Trunk of a Pecan Tree that is well over a hundred years old. The texture has such character. I wish I could have climbed a ladder to get a different angle, but that wasn't going to happen that day. Maybe in the future I will be able to climb a ladder and get what I really wanted to take a photo of.
A Canvas Cover that covers the burn barrel when not in use.
A Rusty Vise. I love the look of old and rusty items.
Rough Sand Paper
Paint Brush.. I like the wood texture also.
Here is the poor dead Cicada. I just could not get this picture to happen the way I pictured it in my mind :-( _ If I didn't get it too light for your monitor you should be able to see some ridges within the wings.
This one did not come out the way I wished either. A Monkey Hologram. He is cute anyway :-)
A Teddy Bear I made many years ago. He is soft.... umm and dusty.
Our Silky Flag with Embroidered Star.
