all the textures by pistache

all the textures

on a walk after a day in the gallery, trying to keep the back exercised, spotting some local colour, texture and pattern. just the kind of thing i never did before i joined 365 and opened my eyes to the world ;)
There is beauty in about everything as long as we are open to take it in. I am learning so much from shots like this one. I would have never looked at it that way either. It certainly has great textures and lovely colors to make it stand out. Great find.

@dutchothotmailcom thanks esther! i did a creative photography course about five years ago and the tutor talked about looking for texture, colour, shape, pattern and lines. he said sometimes people came back the next week saying the world had totally changed for them - and that's exactly what happened to me - i see them everywhere i go ;)

Very interesting combination with the dark stone on top, the colourful brick In the middle and, finally, the organic layer at the bottom.

The unusual PoV adds a sense of drama...

There is a distinct colour theme going on with these layers - a lovely find. I hope your back is improving Clare?

@helenhall thank you so much for asking. it suddenly has in the past three days. off the codeine which is a big relief and just occasional paracetamol. walking and a bit of cycling, and hoping to get back to tennis maybe next week :)

Amazing what the seemingly mundane can teach us. Thank you for your explanation of how you came to capture this. I'm feeling a photo shooting funk and I think you have inspired me to look more closely at my immediate surroundings and let the everyday speak to me. The lichen on the concrete is a nice natural texture against the man made.

thank you elena @theredcamera. oh yes indeed, let the everyday speak to you! what a lovely way of putting it. have you checked out the eye of the beholder challenge? it's a great way to notice seemingly mundane subjects and hear what they have to say ;)
