The rough and the smooth

One of the things about photography I’ve always found especially appealing is the way it can so evocatively convey a sense of texture.

It’s also why I’m sorely tempted to splash out on a really nice lens one of these days; the sharper the better. That crispness makes such a difference; there’s an added purity that makes all the difference in shots like this.

I’ve also found that texture shots really help to bring across the feel of a place when teamed up with a mix of wider landscapes, people shots and so on – yet sometimes I come away from somewhere without having taken any. Something I’ll have to remind myself of on future trips!
