Sunday Stills - Texture



Comby



The texture on these boxes is extra interesting in that they are made from salvaged wood from old water towers in Chicago. Saint Tim's brother makes them. The texture is purely visual. The construction is smooth as silk.



Several overlapping textures...or the perfect murder weapon ;-).



Still not as good as Ed's moons, but getting better. If you click to biggify, you can actually see a couple minor craters. I think the striation on the end makes the moon look like a big watermelon in the sky.



These were the sweetest apples this fall and I'm sad I missed picking these last few.

For more textural Sunday Stills...

All great shots. The one with the icicles almost looks like a contemporary painting.

Heather said...

LOVE your shots this week!

Those iciles, I needed them when I was in scorching Australia.

I wonder if iciles can really kill, watched plenty of TV showing they do.

I have a hard time getting good moon pictures! I love the boxes made with the salvaged wood. and the old wood.

Shirley said...

Well done! Haven't the birds found the apples yet?

The photos this week look as though you are peering through a window and could reach out and touch the image. I also noticed the conflict between what things should be to my minds eye and what is verified: the old wood ( should be rough) and it's actual smoothness, the closeness of the moon and it's actually far away, the smoothness of the icicle and yet it's deadly positioning above my head.
I like these shots a lot.

Love the icicles......or at least the image of them. It's a cold dreary day again here and I could very well do WITHOUT any ice ;)

I think I read that mystery when I was a teen. Boxes are very nice, you should add a link to your BILs shop!
