Texture - the underside

Ah yes, the underside. Often dark and dank and really rather something to avoid.

Unless of course there is some illumination -- bringing the underside into the light.

Then you can see that it too is a part of life, and if carefully examined, can in fact be beautiful as well. And most defintiely part of our "texture". Yes, I want the complete package.

I love this series on texture...I am putting my comment under my favorite picture. I love the way the light highlights the "veins." Beautiful!
Very well sad in each instance...everything truly is connected. 8)

Thanks Honeybee. I appreciate the visits and the comments.

Perhaps there will be more "series" in the future. But for now, just biding my time until I can take some new pictures with my new camera. Ahhh.

Any excuse to photograph. Any push to write. Any opportunity to contemplate.
