Natural Textures

Natural Textures

If you isolate a subject from everything around it, you can create an abstract image as a result of a lack of context. This is a shot of dried algae in a brackish beach pond. But it’s not about what the subject is, it’s about the textures.

Dandelion Seed

Was going through photos and seeing what I had missed during my original selection/edit process. Came on this one. Maybe I had skipped it due to it reminding me that I had weeding to do? Glad I went back and reviewed images from the past. It’s a good practice.

Flowers from Another Day

Flowers from Another Day

A vase of flowers over on a side table sat unnoticed for several days longer than usual. On the way out to the yard waste, they called to me asking for a final photograph. I really like the image… it calls to me. Make sure you click on it and see the larger image. The texture and detail are quite fine.

Stonecrop and Pinesap


I enjoy the flowers that struggle to grow in rugged, rocky dry places or deep in the woods. Stonecrop and Pinesap are that kind of plant. Stonecrop growing in the dry, rocky alpine slopes of the Olympic Mountains and Pinesap growing in the woods, living without chlorophyll.

Amanita Muscaria

These are described as poisonous. I heard stories about native shaman using the psychedelic properties to initiate spiritual trances by feeding them to reindeer. I had a friend back in the 70s that ate them and said the experience was quite intense once you got over the retching and vomiting. I will pass on that. Maybe a nice glass of wine.
