Black and White Weekly Photo Challenge – Texture

Venice texture

This week’s theme focusses on texture, which is a subject that lends itself incredibly well to the black and white shot as the composition is all about tone and contrast, and the wonderful patterns that they create. My subject for this week is a photograph of the sharp and uneven textures of the brickwork in a Venetian building, heavily eroded with age. The beauty for me was how those textures dissolved and became more fluid in the reflection of the water gentlyΒ ebbing and flowing through the narrow canal.

    1. Thank you for your input rabirius. I think textures are about what the eye sees, rather than it necessarily being something that is tactile. In photography it takes on a new dimension, and can be treated as the illusion that it is.

    1. You are very welcome, it’s lovely to visit other people’s blogs and see their entries for this rather marvellous challenge. I’m pleased you stopped by, and it’s a pleasure to meet you too πŸ™‚

    1. Thank you for stopping by and for your lovely comment. The original photo is in colour but I played around with the B+W feature until the textures really stood out. I’m pleased you liked the photo πŸ™‚

  1. Well … that certainly rings the ol’ bell~! I won’t even try to say whyβ€”I just like it enough to sit and stare, let the eyes roam at will.

    Three wags and a woof.

Don't forget to breathe...
