Art on a brick wall in Durham, NC
Texture is something we take for granted those of us who are not blind. Those of us who can see are usually distracted first by what we see instead of what we feel. All kinds of different textures can be found no matter where you are. We can almost see texture before feeling it as our brain makes the connection from past experiences.
Below are several
textures I have found around the world.
Machinery texture at the Sunshine Mill Winery in The Dalles, OR
Different textures of dead broken branches, dead fallen dry leaves, a live tree trunk and live green leaves. At Eno River, Durham NC
There is nothing like soft sand between your toes. Found at a hidden beach in Oregon.
Maple leaf in my previous garden in Portland, OR
The texture of the skin of a dolphin is like nothing I’ve felt before. Cancun, Mexico
