Texture of Thought
The printed word (whether on paper or screen) is the singular method by which great ideas and thoughts are transmitted from generation to generation. These are the intitial contributions to the world of reading in our recenty opened Little Free Library.

Photography is all about evoking sensations in the viewer - this week's challenge is to stimulate a sense of tactile look and feel by making texture the theme of your image. Texture in an image is often associated with details, so look to incorporate things that make these features stand out - feel free to add contrast or edge contrast (clarity) to your shots to bring out these fine details even more. While texture generally invites the small details as we see in Macro Photoghraphy, it's not all about going close - you could take landscape shots of fields or mountains, or perhaps some lines in the sand, there's texture all around you! Make the viewer relate to the subject of your photo from within their own experiences - images of rich gooey chocolatey syrup, soft fabric, or perhaps coarse sand can transport the viewer within the image. It's helpful to look for patterns and subjects that are easily recognizable and relatable. As with most things in photography, try not to overprocess too much, as there's the law of diminishing returns there when things start to look fake. See it. Feel it. Shoot it.
