Tuesday Texture: Manhole Cover

Manufactured in Opelika, Alabama. I know not when. They’ve had foundries there a lot longer than I’ve been alive.

I have a post up at Sourcerer that I’d love some feedback on. Making long-term decisions and such.


Tuesday Texture: Lawn Furniture

Tuesday Textures are not “wordless” posts. It’s perfectly all right to include a little text with them, especially if the text provides some info about where the shot came from or technical details about how you took the photo.

This is a shot of the seat of a neighbor’s lawn chair, taken with my Samsung Galaxy S4 camera phone, which is the best camera I have for high-ish resolution photos and has the advantage of being in my pocket at all times.

Something about the geometry and the color just grabbed me.

I must send a shoutout to my photoblogging buddy That Montreal Girl. She’s been doing texture photos a lot longer than me. I just came up with an alliterative title. That’s the easy part, really. You can find her on Twitter @ThatMTLGirl
