Bello Giorno was the venue for the wedding that I photographed on July 7th – July 9th in Belvidere, NJ. I took this picture of a paving stone in the garden where outdoor weddings are held.
In that same garden is a statue that I found interesting. I photographed it in Black and White to bring out the textures:
In the back of the garden is the ‘Cottage’ where the bridal party gets dressed for the wedding:
Of course, I had Tuesdays of Texture in mind when I took these photos.
The neighborhood cat decided to rest in the shade of one of our trees, waiting for the start of our first annual 4th of July parade.
The picture is has a plethora of different, intermixed textures.

We spent a long weekend in Chatham, Massachusetts (located in the southeastern part of Cape Cod). While there, my wife and I took a long photo excursion walk in this beautiful historic town. The featured image is from one of the many historical buildings in the town. You can see the beautiful gray cedar shingles used for siding, along with the 300th anniversary placard.
Here is the front of the cottage with its beautiful blue door:
Right across the street from this cottage is a tree over looking the bay. The back side of the tree was covered with a mustard color moss. This also has some beautiful texture:

We went out with friends to the Elks Club on Saturday night for a Shrimp Fest dinner. We had a wonderful dinner at a poolside table. Just off of the pool deck was this raised platform with a picnic table in the middle. The railing around the table was a very thick rope that looked like a huge boa constrictor snake. I love the texture differences between the wood, the rope, the plants, the brick and the old rusted chain.

This photo was taken though the train car window heading up the mountain in Skagway, Alaska.

I chose an image from Cartegena, Spain. There is a hill in the center of the city where active archeological digs are in progress. At the top of this hill is this round, stone structure. I bled a bit of the color out of the photograph to enhance the textural quality.
Here is the original image:
Each version has its own textural qualities. Note the two people in the image to the right of the structure. They blend in a bit, so you don’t see them at first.

It is a beautiful spring morning in North Carolina. I took my camera outside to capture several images with texture and found this small spring shoot of leaves on the trunk of an older sweet gum tree. The softness of the leaf surface contrasts nicely with the roughness of the gray bark.

Here we have a picture of Christopher Columbus in Colon Plaza in Old San Juan, Puerto Rico. The statue has some lovely textural details.

This odd little gazebo like structure was in the middle of a plaza on the waterfront in the port city of Fort-de-France in Martinique. You can see bands of different colored and textured paver tiles on the plaza with the matching textured steps up to the covered surface. I also like the smooth texture of the roof vs. the rough and rusty texture of the columns.

Today I feature the Rock of Bethsheba Rock on Bathesheba Beach on the east coast of Barbados. The waves never cease on this side of the island that faces the Atlantic Ocean. The waves have undercut the rock to make this beautiful formation.
With the ocean in the foreground and the palms in the background, you have quite a mixture of different textures.
