Texture

 

Recently someone commented about…

the texture of eucalyptus trees

eucalypts_1868

They can be very smooth to touch…

eucalypts_0066

or rather rough,

particularly when shedding bark.

eucalypts_0050

This one has a combination of textures

in a small area.

brick_1879

Something different.

House bricks all look reasonably smooth from a distance.

However, this one is anything but smooth at close quarters.

Cee’s Black and White Challenge:

Chairs and Seating.

On Wednesday morning I took a stroll

around Geelong’s Botanical Gardens.

seat_0010Plenty of seats were on offer…
seat_0042for this week’s challenge.

seat_0122This is not we would generally call a seat,

however it did remind me of a time

when I ran foul of the law by

sitting on a step to have my photo taken.

I even remember the street and house number.

It was No. 10, Downing Street, London.

One of London’s bobbies made it fairly clear that it was inappropriate.

Cee’s Black and White Challenge:

Texture.

~~~~~

I have been trying to download a trial version of Paint Shop Pro since last May.  Or better said, open a download.

Yesterday I achieved that goal, on my laptop, but still no joy with my PC.

So today and for this post I have been playing with PSP.

bark_0706aI found a texture option…

bark_0044aand played around with Black and White options available…

wood_0261aand discovered the contrast and sharpen buttons.

wood_0218aI also clicked on a feedback button to create this image.

bricksA few bricks for added texture…the wall looks spectacular in colour.

bark_0064aEnding with a some fairly heavy

contrasts on this bark.

Inspiration for this week’s Black and White Challenge are again some random photos and some taken for this challenge.

LEAF-BW

All I know about the plant in this photo is that it grows in the tropics.

wood_1864-BW

An old fence post.

~~~~~

road_1866-BW

This photo gives me a whole new look at something I use every day.

eucalypt_1868-BW

‘Gum’ (Eucalyptus) trees have various bark textures. This one is an old Sugar Gum with a three-foot diameter trunk.

Testing the macro lens on my camera…once again something used by many but seen in a different light.
