Worldly Texture

“When we get out of the glass bottle of our ego and when we escape like the squirrels in the cage of our personality and get into the forest again, we shall shiver with cold and fright. But things will happen to us so that we don’t know ourselves. Cool, unlying life will rush in.” D. H. Lawrence

We live in a a wonderful world that is full of beauty, charm, adventure and texture. There is no end to the textures we can encounter if only we seek them with our eyes open. Texture comes in all shapes and sizes. From a close up to a sand dune far away to an arrangement of balconies boasting on a high rise, they can be found almost anywhere. They can be soft like the fresh snow on a  tree branch, fragile as peeling paint on a weathered facade, delicate as ripples on a glacial lake, patterned like a intricately plowed farm field. I’m inspired by imagery in all mediums but photography can be a personal favorite and luckily there is no shortage of inspiring photographers in this world. Here are some spectacular images of photographers I celebrate who share texture through their collective lens’. I hope they inspire you to go out and find beauty in texture!

    So inspirational about the beauty in texture! I would add that context is equally as important – there’s nothing more special than experiencing such beauty with someone that you love – that only heightens the exhilaration of the moment…
