I didn’t write yesterday, apparently; I find that disconcerting. I have been making extensive travel plans — or is that plans for extensive travel? — and it has distracted me. The availability of an overwhelming amount of information on the computer becomes really difficult to navigate, decipher, compare, digest!
So, back to bark. I find this texture compellingly complex, and love the copper gems in the lower left. This complexity is enticing and satisfying as opposed to the frustrating complexity of the online experience. Simplicity is lovely and so is this intertwined collection of textures. The gray/brown/silver/rust are almost gemlike in their depth.
I took this photo with my camera phone, as usual. I wonder what a high-quality lens and sensor would do for this image.
