Dimond – thru the macro lens

A quick photo study
on my way to the bank
and the post office
and back…

I was inspired by Our Oakland’s photo journeys on color, though mine is on texture.

While shooting this one below, of washed out silt and sand in patterns in on the asphalt in front of a storm drain, a guy asked me “Whatchya doin’ there?”

I said, “I’m making art.”

He said, “It looks wierd!” (Me, taking a picture of the ground, that is.)  Thanks buddy.

PS – This is the first (of many more to come) assignments from my June blogging e-course… “Write a visual post. Use more images than words.

    Love it. A great variety of textures. I especially like the fence and the tree, but the aggregate of all the images is cooler still.
