Texture Tuesday-to do

Linking at the Kim Klassen Cafe for this week's Texture Tuesday.  Thank you Kim.


This week was an and/or topic.  The theme was "do" in a verb.  Then came the option of staying with the do and adding at least one texture, or scrapping the whole "do" thang, and using the Autumn Burst texture.

I went with and.  This sounds like Bill Clinton saying it depends what the definition of is is.  I'm off topic again, but I do have many endearing qualities.

Textin' and Smokin'

While in Boston, I spied this waitress. It was 11:00 and she was getting in the necessities before the lunch rush. I loved that she was so engrossed that I could wait for the smoke exhale...she hadn't a clue that I was snapping her image.

While these two "dos" are not something I "do" I suppose you could call them verbs.  Somehow verbs suggest to me action....maybe her thumbs were quickly flying over all those letters.

Happy Tuesday.

great moment you captured. love the texture work.

Fabulous shot, Susan. And for some reason your photo makes me think of a Norman Rockwell painting. Not that he was in the habit of painting people smoking, so maybe it's the bunting, or the suggestion of film on the edges, not that he did that, either... but something!
I also love the reflections. So many people not knowing you were recording them.

I like how you were really able to capture an unguarded moment. I feel like I'm eavesdropping and won't get into trouble for it :)

Hi, I really didn't disappear, but had to take a short break from some computer FUN! and concentrate on other matters. But I have now had the pleasure of reading all of your posts. You are a force to be reckoned with....your work just improves exponentially. Your Texture photo, is really very good...not over done. I have to say I agree with you, it is a mixed bag of feelings when it comes to textures. I tend to go for the brighter look, and then I darken too much, or I .........
just haven't quite got the hang of it, but do like the challenge.

Your weather will change quickly....and you will garner some fantastic shots...then winter will give you an entirely new perspective..especially in settings, etc. But I think those photos will also be very special and maybe the lighter textures like Kim does so well, will do nicely for you,

I am leaving for a week, but didn't want to go without letting you know what a great photographer you year....well you will be professional and probably not bother with a blog!!! LOL LOL....stay happy, stay focused. Sharon
