Since Ed kept the March challenge open to a wide interpretation, I will follow his lead and provide a similarly broad subject to work with:

This Month's Challenge: Texture

Whether a baby's skin or weathered wood, this month's challenge should be of images that are almost palpable!

Rules - pictures are to be taken in the last 90 days, the longest dimension is to be resized to800 pixels to keep things equal and there's only one entry per person. If you post a picture early in the month, then take a better one later on, you can delete the first one (just edit your post and delete the attachment) and post the new one. As usual, the pictures are to be taken with aPentax / Samsungcamera (any model).

I look forward to this talented group's interpretation!

Mike

Congratulations and thanks for the idea Mike! This one should provide some really interesting shots.

Interesting topic - I can't decide if I love it or hate it. Do I want to go abstract or not, macro or not? I took one today that would fit this topic, but it makes me dizzy to look at it. I might post it just for fun in a different thread and see if anyone else reacts the same way. In any case, I'll have fun this month trying to come up with something worthy of such a challenging topic.

mtngal,

It is certainly open. The attached is one of the shots I had in mind when I proposed it. I find in my photograpy I am often attracted to texture and then try to find an interesting form around or within it.

I hope you have fun with it. After seeing several of your pictures, I am sure you will have a creative response.

This shot was taken some time ago so needless to say, does not qualify!

Mike

Changed my mind already, how about the texture of dirty "rotting" snow. The spring melt is not an attractive site.

Just found this by a barn my husband wanted to photograph. I thought it was interesting the way the blades had left their mark in the wood.

From the front yard, I love the feathers.

Ira - your dirty snow definitely has texture, and sure isn't pretty. Compare that to Patty's beautiful, colorful wood and it looks even more dingy.

Tom, your grousedoes havebeautiful feathers.

My first entry for a monthly challenge and my second post. This tree has an ice skirt caused by flooding, followed by a quick freeze.
I really like the texture of that chopped tree, Patty.
