T is for Texture

Are you ready for another round of Alphabe Thursday? Let's go!

One of the most amazing things about bettering your photography skills is learning how to capturing all sorts of different textures effectively. Here are just a few of my favorites from this year.

Feathers on a sparrow, Milwaukee Zoo, July 2013
Tire tracks in the dirt, Greenfield Park, July 2013

Kitty fur, July 2013
Clouds, Hank Aaron Trail, July 2013
Waves and pool ripples, Grant Park, August 2013

Tiramisu cheesecake batter, August 2013

Fountain on the VA Grounds in Milwaukee, September 2013

Backyard bonfire, August 2013

Check out what the other Alphabe Thursday participants posted for the letter T this week right here!


  1. Nice choice of theme! Texture is everywhere, and I really like the examples you chose. I think the fountain is my favorite.

  2. you have an eye! love those examples...

  3. Beautiful photos! You can almost feel the texture.

  4. lovely photos especially that last one. An abstract painting.

  5. My favorite, of course, is the kitty toes! BTW, love the short focus on many of these shots - it really draws the eye.

  6. Great photos! I love the waves and pool ripples shot, and the fire!

  7. Tiramisu - Yum! Lots of great shots!

  8. I miss having a fire once in a while. We used to go camping, but not anymore. Campfires are the best! Lovely photos!

  9. That fountain picture is fantastic! I haven't managed any truly good water shots yet. The birdie looks so super soft!

  10. great AT posts. I like the cloud shot the best.

    have a great day.

  11. Great textures here. Who doesn't love kitty fur :)
    Nice shot of that sweet little sparrow!

  12. I love how you incorporated your photos into an interesting pictorial essay depicting textures through your images. My SIL & daughter were in Milwaukee at the end of August for the big Harley Davidson anniversary bash. My SIL is the year's winner of a customized bike. Anywho, am now following you! Have a good weekend.

  13. I thought I left a comment here but we're trying again, as we're putting together November's issue of The Woven Tale Press:

  14. You did a terrific job capturing all of these different textures...

    The tiramisu photograph is totally making my mouth water for a tasty treat!
