Photographs of simple common subjects with intriguing textures and patterns often create stunning images that capture the artist’s and the viewers’ eyes.  Fallen Leaf photograph taken in Canning Vale, WA has great Soft edges in the background which creates recession in the photo, whereas the sharp detailed textures and patterns in the foreground  bring it forward to make it appear nearer.

I tend to be a big fan of close ups of the subject, feeling that I can convey much more richness of depth and essence of the subject using that approach in taking the photo.

The textures of the photo Sand at Lancelin has lovely depth, intricate negative spaces close up, and with silvery purple shadows softly falling upon the sand.

Cherry Blossoms nature’s textures


Cherry Blossoms textures are smooth ruffles of rosy petticoats.  Whereas the Banksia has long tendrils curling down and around in lovely random patterns.
