Sonel’s Black and White Photo Challenge: TEXTURE

Sonel has given us a theme that catches the imagination this week : Texture I find it interesting because ‘texture’ is not normally experienced by sight alone, as often it is perceived by our tactile sense–you have to feel it too. My first interpretation takes on the rock surface of a cliff.


Then, a close-up of a rocky surface. Even when looking at a picture, one has to evoke the tactile memory to appreciate the texture.


My second interpretation is the texture of food in my mouth. This is a carrot cake–imagine you are tasting the smooth drop icing…


then you taste the cake. Feel the texture in your mouth, moist and soft.


Next comes the peach crumble. The texture is different here. The crumble part is slightly “grainy” with the oatmeal, which blends well with the soft peaches which melt in your mouth.


The ultimate experience is tasting the dried fruit cake at Christmas. Imagine feeling the a piece in your mouth and discover the texture of the cake and the morsels of fruits. Hmm….

    Great selection of photos for this challenge! My favorite, in terms of texture (and taste!), is the cake photo.

      True..and I think when one looks at a picture of a “textured” object, information stored in the brain from other sense also comes in too in the perception. 🙂

      I had a lot of fun doing this post, especially when I decided to illustrate using the texture of food. I don’t blog much about my baking, and so I have a good selection of images to choose from. Glad you like it, Seonaid 😉
