Thematic Photographic 151 - Rough


Knotted
London, ON, March 2011

I'm going to try shifting Thematic's schedule a bit: Launching Monday evenings should get the week off to a good start, and give us all a little happy on a day that so often seems to offer the exact opposite. And since it's been a rough time for many of us, rough is our theme this week.

As you mull over your own Thematic contribution this week, I hope you'll keep in mind that rough can be something physical, or it can be virtual. As ever, how you interpret it is entirely up to you. This is about creativity, not judgment.

Your turn: If you know Thematic, don't let me stop you. If you're new to our weekly photo-sharing activity, click here for more background. If you're not a RTFM type, post a rough-themed pic to your blog - or find something, even if it's older, that's already online - then leave a comment here letting everyone know where to find it. Visit other participants to share the joy. Repeat as often as you wish.

One more thing: Many thanks to On My Soapbox for suggesting this week's theme. If you've got a theme you'd like to see us explore, feel free to suggest it in a comment.

Gnarly knot. I have a few of those shots myself. Oddly enough. we found a tree that is alive and kicking, but with massive holes in it. Maybe I will post another thematic tomorrow, and show them. For now, here is today; http://fredamans.blogspot.com/2011/06/thematic-photographic-rough.html

Old, dead trees look great in black & white, good choice. Here are mine for this theme.

Since I suggested this theme, it’s the least I can do to join in! Here are a few things I think are “rough”.

Not sure if this would count as rough but this wasn't smooth lake ice. It was very rough and coarse and jumbled up. Here is my entry: Lake Ice #3

Here's one I took this weekend while camping.
