The Tuesdays of Texture prompt seemed to close down on Sept. 19 with this final message: “We are now bracing for Hurricane Maria, a cat 5 with a pronosticated route through the middle of PR Wednesday to Thursday. Please KEEP US IN YOUR PRAYERS that we stay safe and it goes by fast.THANKS TO ALL PARTICIPATIONS!”
I hope Narami is okay. I miss this prompt so I’m going to continue to post it on my own. If anyone else wants to establish a link with their own texture photo or if they know any news of Narami and why the site seems to have gone inactive, please comment below! GOOD NEWS Looks like she is okay… just a different URL from the one I’ve had favorited. See her blog HERE.
I love the layers even within the layers in this photo snapped while driving by! Why were those bricks laid so unevenly? Was that why the stucco came off in this area? Did the jutting bricks mean there was less stucco and so it was weaker?
No accident ensued as a result of this shoot. If moving with no chance to pull over, I take a fast glance, then avert eyes back to my driving as I hold the camera up at eye level on the side of my head and and click away, then later crop. Some shots just can’t be missed. Luckily, there was no traffic behind me when I saw this potential shot, so I was able to stop and click it out of the car window.
Uncropped, unlevelled. Drive-by Shooting.
Time, weather and man are the elements that eventually diminish a tree, turning the ground around it into a graveyard of its bits. This initial stage of decay has a beauty all its own.
(Click on photos to enlarge.) When a huge old tree dies and needs to be chopped down, a lot of wood chips are the result.
I have no idea how old the monster tree on the main road through Ajijic was when they cut it down a few days ago, but it was the largest in the two walls of trees that separate the carretera from the two lateral roads that run through town on either side of it. I’m saving photos of the main tree for the Sunday Trees prompt, but the chips left on the ground have a beauty all their own—just right for Tuesdays of Texture.
