Hmmmm, I didn't know others did the same thing! How many times have I found something to shoot, capture many shots, come home, upload, and ask, "Why did you take pictures of that?"
To be sure, the texture is interesting. I probably would have taken the shot too. Yes, interesting to some, but probably not a hit with the masses. It may have more appeal in a B & W version.
The problem is it lacks a focus point. There is no single point to draw the eye. I suppose I fail to understand that concept, until I see something like this.
It does work well for checking out focusing techniques and quality.
