I enjoyed two things about today's Texture prompt. First, photographing during the brightest part of the day would yield the most dramatic results. Second, the most obvious subject matter was an inanimate object. This meant no need to try to nail the golden hour of sunlight or search high and low for suitable subject matter.
I spent much of today cleaning up from an overnight rainstorm and prepping for tomorrow's afternoon arrival of eleven kindergarten girls for a craft and swim party. Oh, and my kids were around and screaming at each other a fair amount of the time. That left about five minutes for me to snap a few photos in my yard with my DSLR.
No, that's not a satellite photograph. It's a close-up of lichen growing on a honey locust tree in my front yard. Definitely a lot of texture. My favorite aspect of this photo is that it looks like something completely different than what it is. The one thing I would like to improve upon is that the bottom right corner is out of focus. Oh well, better luck next time.

Our task for tomorrow is a photograph from a high angle. That's pretty self-explanatory, but you can read more about it from Expert Photography here. This could be a fun one. What will you look down upon?
