Texture: Join the Thursday Photo Challenge!

Photo of water in Istanbul Mama Adventure

Welcome! Come and join the Thursday Photo Challenge, a weekly photography challenge for everyone who likes to take photos!

This week’s challenge is texture.

Texture and pattern should function as a surprise.

My photo is from Istanbul, where the texture of this scene fascinated me. It wasn’t just the water, although that’s intriguing by itself since it’s very obviously standing water, but the surface is choppy like tidal water.

The texture of the stone around the water, and the white egg-like structures in the centre of the feature were also fascinating, and the whole thing contrasts with the trees in the background.

Reflecting on this photo, I wish I had taken it with a higher ISO and faster shutter speed to really get more light and movement into the image. But that would have meant using my Canon Eos instead of my iPhone, which is what this was actually taken with. :0

What can you come up with for this challenge?

Here’s how to take part:

  1. Take a photo or search your files for one that represents the week’s theme.
  2. Write a post, including your photo, any words of explanation or inspiration you wish to share, and a link to this challenge page.
  3. Comment on this post with a link to your page so others can see your contribution.
  4. That’s it! Super easy.

This challenge will stay open for one week, then next Thursday, I will post the next challenge!
