Team-Up Thursday: Texture

Jody and I had a very busy week and only decided on our theme of "texture" yesterday. Luckily, I'm a seasoned procrastinator and work well under pressure. :) We figured that since texture is everywhere it wouldn't be hard to grab a shot around the house last night. I love the way our shots fit together this week. There are obvious differences, like how Jody's shot portrays more of a "hard" texture and has several items in the shot compared to the "softness" of the blanket and my shot focuses more on a single shape on the blanket. I chose to convert my shot to grayscale (except for the heart which I left pink) and I loved how it coordinated with the rocks: most of them were gray, but a few have slightly pink tones. Even one of the rocks in the pic (toward the left-center) seems to have a heart-shape to it, but that may just be my imagination!


Check out Megan and Melody to see more Theme Thursday shots.

yes, these definitely work well together. you pointed out the soft vs. hard, and i do see a hint of a heart-shaped rock in there!

I was going to say that I swear one of her rocks looks like a heart. I love how you processed your shot, it has a "feel" to it.

Those both look fabulous together! And I agree with you that one of the rocks in the middle resembles a heart. Sweet!

I definitely like the comparison of hard and soft textures. Your conversion to a soft grayscale totally works. Looks great!

I see the heart rock too. Great pics! Thanks for the book tip--I got it for Christmas two years ago and still have yet to go through it. At least I have all the right tools! Now I just need the extra time. Is learning to shoot in the manual mode that hard? I know that's what I have to figure out first, right?!?

This is one of my faves this week. I saw the heart rock too! The greyscale conversion works really well, even for a sweater!!!
