Monotone Patterns

Today I decided not to bring my Nikon camera along on my walk but rather take the smaller Fuji camera that my friend Nigel gave me. It’s a great camera but I just love my Nikon so much I just can’t seem to go out without it. But today, I finally tore myself away from Nikon and stepped into the world of Fuji.

Dried Leaf

I walked over to one of the local parks and I decided to focus on patterns and texture in my photos today. A dried leaf on the piece of wood caught my eye and I immediately got a few shots of it. The original shot is in colour but I found I was able to see more of the textures if I converted the image to black and white and really cropped into the leaf.

Not too far from the leaf, I found this old log. It’s irregular pattern and texture was amazing. I can almost feel the wood under my hand.

I think my Fuji did a very good job of capturing the images I was looking for. Now I just have to occasionally give up the dependency on my Nikon. 😉
