Surfaces reveal so much. The marks painters make reveal so much about their work and themselves; their sense of proportion, line, and rhythm is more telling than their signature. Looking at the surfaces of nature may offer equivalent revelations. What do these shapes and patterns reveal about the world and their creator? Surfaces hide so much… John Paul Caponigro
Well, I finally did it. After months of researching and agonizing, I bought the Fuji X-T2 mirrorless camera. I haven’t been disappointed. It is lighter than my Canon 70D and is perfect for traveling. The Fuji lens are also amazingly sharp. I bought the 16 to 55 mm Fuji lens (f 2.8) bundled with the camera and have been experimenting with it. This weekend, I’m also trying out the 90mm Fuji lens (f2) on loan from Lens Rentals.com–a great way to “road test” cameras, lens, and other photographic equipment.
So here’s my collection of shots for this week’s textures theme.
Precious Summer Days
As you can see from the first image from Holland State Park, I’m already fretting that summer is going to be too short!
Cactus In Bloom
Even the prickly cactus cheers up in summer.
Cherries on the Vine
Did I tell you that cherries are one of my favorite types of summer fruit?
This wooden path along the water is one of our favorite walks in Grand Rapids.
These stunningly beautiful lilies grow in profusion at Meijer Gardens. I spotted this one yesterday dappled by the sun and shadows.
Have you made the “jump” to mirrorless? Or, are you still debating?
I hope you enjoy these summer textures no matter what season you’re in right now. And have an inspiring week!
