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.

Do you sometimes take a picture and not get the result you expect? Here is one of those cases. My camera’s auto-focus chose the background pine straw instead of the small blue spruce tree. I think that the result makes a perfect Tuesdays of Texture example.

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.
My entry for this week continues with pictures from St. Lucia. Here we have the cliffs on the northern side of Soufrière Bay, opposite the Piton mountains.
