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 gently ebbing and flowing through the narrow canal.

Especially when you’re shooting in Venice 🙂
No this was a photo I took last year while I was there, but I’m due to return next Tuesday… I’m so excited! 🙂
Thanks for stopping by!
Very nice! You definite nailed that one 🙂 Namaste . . .
Thank you Risinghawk! 🙂
I love the idea of the reflection in the water – it gives a totally different view of the textures.
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.
Thanks for liking my post on Foreshadow. It’s interesting we have chosen a similar interpretation for Texture (well, at least for half of my post):
Nice meeting you in blog sphere. 🙂

Absolutely stunning shot and take on the challenge Ish! Love it! Thanks so much for taking part and for sharing hon. 😀 *big hugs*
Great shot. Love the reflection in the water and the way it sort of curls and twists.
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 🙂
Great contrasting textures! 🙂

Brilliant Ishaiya! The swirling reflection transforms it into abstract art 🙂

Well … that certainly rings the ol’ bell~! I won’t even try to say why—I just like it enough to sit and stare, let the eyes roam at will.
Three wags and a woof.
Much appreciated Argie! I always enjoy your visits. I hope all is well on your side of the planet.
