Travel Theme: Texture

There’s an ecstasy about doing something really good on film: the composition of a shot, the drama within the shot, the texture… It’s palpable.”
William Shatner


The web, then, or the pattern, a web at once sensuous and logical, an elegant and pregnant texture: that is style, that is the foundation of the art of literature.”
Robert Louis Stevenson


What interested me was not news, but appraisal. What I sought was to grasp the flavor of a man, his texture, his impact, what he stood for, what he believed in, what made him what he was and what color he gave to the fabric of his time.
John Gunther


I search for the realness, the real feeling of a subject, all the texture around it… I always want to see the third dimension of something… I want to come alive with the object.”
Andrew Wyeth


This is my response to Ailsa’s travel theme: texture.

How do you define texture?

    Your presentation shows some real creativity. I really like the way you describe “texture” through thoughts and quotations rather than a dictionary definition. And your photographs bring me to some new perspectives on the idea of texture. Very nice…
