This next photo shows a decaying tree stump, with cracks and smooth, patterned depressions (carved out by some sort of bug...?). It fascinated me.
I see texture in clusters of flowers, too. Here is an example:
I enjoy the pebbles on the beach, or even just in a neighbor's yard. I'm not sure if I'm more drawn to the texture or the color here!
Speaking of the beach, I found these shiny bubbles contrasted against the coarse, dark sand:
And here is foam on the water, reminding me of a damask tablecloth:
Here is more texture on water--isn't it beautiful?
And of course, I must include some pictures of the ubiquitious glowing leaves--see the different sizes and shapes?
Of course, leaves don't have to glow to get my attention:
Even in the winter, they can distract me from my walk:
