You Capture/Week Three/Texture

First, thank you Beth for the camera strap I won in a previous challenge. I can't wait to get it.

Second, I had a little trouble with this challenge. The way I take pictures, you have to use the zoom to get texture up close and then it got blurry. I fiddled and I fiddled and here's what I came up with. Beth got the picture that I really wanted at the fire station, but I didn't have my own camera. Check hers out. They are great, as usual.

Here are my attempts. There are a few...






This is one of the baskets from my Longaberger collection.




This is one of my favorite blankets.

This is my Waterford vase.


This is the fringe on a couch pillow



Lastly, this is the bark on one of our old maple trees. It's my favorite capture.



Now, I'm off to work and then home to see all of your pictures.

  20. These photos truly capture the imagination! I, too, love the bark. At first, I thought it was beach sand or shells. The texture is amazing. What a creative assignment... and one that gets us thinking about all those little details within details... like life itself!
