A serene, blissful, quiet moment on the water. Allegany State Park, NY

There is a serene and settled majesty to woodland scenery that enters into the soul and delights and elevates it, and fills it with noble inclinations. ~ Washington Irving

Last spring while on a photo journey through the Niagara Parks, we stopped at the Floral Clock. There were so many photos to be found as we walked around the clock 😉

This week, share your take on rounded.” it’s a broad theme, so I look forward to your personal interpretations, whether you choose to focus on a curving street, limbs caught mid-way through a dance, a bowl of fruit (think of all the round shapes!), or any other object, landscape, or texture that fits within your definition of the theme. As always, less-literal takes are equally welcome.

Layers of texture.

I am drawn in by moss. I love the colour; the texture and the layers. I love the contrast between the layers: rough rock and soft moss.

In this photo, there is the added bonus of a contrast in textures between new spring green and last fall’s leaves, once crisp but now soggy.

This week, share with us a layered image of your own. The topic is wide open, as long as you focus on the interplay of depth, density, and texture (or just choose one of these elements if you’d like). Strata of clouds, a shirt collar peeking through a sweater, a cross-section of an onion: you can keep your interpretation as literal or as figurative as you wish.
