Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Textures

I’m having fun with this week’s theme. I don’t always enter this challenge and I felt that today I had some appropriate pics.The first one is my favourite – the bark of a palm tree in the middle of the desert in Namibia.

The mirror-like texture of our beautiful sparkling pool. Taken in the evening just as the sun slipped below the horizon, the time when everything is so still, not even the bats are out yet.

The texture of a lemon from my favourite tree in our garden – the lemon tree that blesses us with organic fruit several times a year. This tree is very patient with us as often years go by without us pruning it. One side of the tree yields the rough-skinned lemon, where the other half yields the smooth-skinned lemon. Probably the very successful result of a grafting project before we bought the house.

The metallic texture of the escalators at work. I couldn’t resist this shot because I find the never-ending quality of the stairs hypnotic. It’s more of a visual thing for me, rather than a kinaesthetic one.
