Textures of South America

As well as star-gazing, while travelling a lot of ground-staring takes up my time.

Sometimes this is to avoid stacking it spectacularly when hiking (as a wise Bostonian I met in Bolivia once said: “I’m in a perpetual state of falling”).  Other times, my eyes are glued to the floor in order to take in the kaleidoscope of colours and textures staring back at me.

  1. I love these! I’m interested that you take texture shots – it’s something I always do too, often in preference to anything else…but one shouldn’t “rush” them. They are very calming, so the memory of capturing them should be too lol!

    1. Once you start taking these sorts of pictures, you start seeing texture absolutely everywhere. These pics don’t even start on the texture of the food around here – we could do a whole other post on that 🙂
