The topic for Exploring With a Camera is found textures. Despite the fact that textures are one of my favorite things to photograph, this topic actually gave me pause, and I had to sit and think what I might have in my archives that I could use for a submission.
I came across this image of one of the pools in Mammoth Hot Springs. I decided that this was the best submission. For one thing, there are many different textures respresented in the photograph. Although, I suppose you could sum it up with the word - rough. Sand paper or course rock. The spiky plants also lend themselves to this imagery. Also, I find the abstract quality of this photo extremely interesting. The first thing that came to mind when I saw this was, cool, I have a photo of an alien landscape. Then I thought, hum, this could have easily have been a piece of the ocean. This composition is a microcosm of a much larger world, a world full of all kinds of found textures.
