Black & White Sunday: Texture

For this theme you are invited to translate the tactile quality of the surface of an object into an image, and to make it black and white.

While considering texture for the challenge I stumbled upon an interesting quote by Paul Scott:

“The past becomes a texture, an ambience to our present.”

I would very much like to see how you would interpret it (both the theme and the quote).

  1. whether in the natural world or the (de)constructions of humans, or in the intersect between the two, texture by and far arises not from intent, but of the elements, over time, interacting, engaging one another, each of them changed in the interaction, the dispersion of energy. The static photograph splendidly captures the motion of this dynamic. How the terrain is like any other terrain, valleys in its skin like canyons carved out by streams and creeks and rivers. One cannot help but ponder the flow, the growth – a rough life? serene?

    Interesting facet – the ambiance of a landscape emerges from its texture , whether desert or forest, urban or rural.


  2. the song (again) is so beautiful = = at the 2 minute mark her voice came in so soothing – and great texture P….


          • Is it the same cost as the videos? Just curious – and I splurged for the video feature for a year – but could never get it to work right – and I might try again later, but it was a big ol’ headache….


              • Ps
                I have a black and white texture photo to share – it is a backside of a tombstone – will be back later today to set up my post! which might be closer to Monday for you…..


                  • Hi P- and thanks for the comment – and I kept the comments off on that one (which you know I RARELY do…) but I might do that with posts that I have the historical feel – and then maybe I should separate the challenges? Oh who knows – way too much thinking for a blog post –
                    anyhow, wishing you a nice week P πŸ™‚

  15. The music is very “You”. The bark reminds me of my (long gone) european woods.
    The quote is perfect. Without dwelling in it we are nothing without the past, our past, our parents, grandparents, ancestors. They indeed have given the texture to our lives. We cannot ignore that texture. Obrigado Menina.
