I love textures.
But this time I'm not talking about 
the kind you add via Photoshop,
although those are certainly lovely
in their own right.

No, I'm talking about the delightful, dizzying array
of textures to be found
during a stroll through

rusty old film reels

a well -used butcher's block

industrial gears

vintage signs both domestic...

and international

and a much loved, peely chest...

These  are the textures
that make my knees weak.

I have found myself falling more and more
in love with being a photographer in recent

It's a joy that makes me giddy and content,
as I feel a fulfillment and inspiration
which comes from doing something
one truly loves.

Thank you for letting me share a little
of my love with you.

You are right... if you love the things you are photographing you will love the photos and the photographing.

The beauty of well worn textures is how they beg to be touched and caressed...and I'm more than willin' to oblige!

The more texture the better - as far as I am concerned. Course I have more "texture" now than I used to! :) Smiling for you and your happiness Anne!

Beautiful! My husband will never get the 'texture' thing, but I love it. And yes, it makes me weak in the knees too!

Love your photos. I am a texture lover too. I just want to jump through my camera screen and touch the objects you photographed.

I am your newest Follower, just subscribed to your e-magazine, and am adding you to my sidebar in just a moment...
I'd love to feature you on my blog with your give-a-way offer. You just let me know. Was not clear how to contact you otherwise so am doing so in The Comment section.
When driving across the US seven years ago with three Labs, I made a purposeful stop in Fredericksburg, TX and loved it but that's another story....

OK, my knees are shaking girl!!! Ha, Ha! Great textures and linens. I can't get enough of those linens these days. I keep a stock pile :) I hope I made you laugh. Seems like I don't do enough of it these days.
Have a good night,

I love those old signs and I love the chest! I have an old chest, looks like a pirates chest but it is ancient! When I was a teen I lined it with white wallpaper with a tiny lavender flower print! I need to drag it out of the garage! I need to finish cleaning my garage! Ha Ha!
Hugs Anne
