Thematic Photographic 231 - Softness

A good night's sleep
London, ON
January 2013
I don't have a lot of soft-themed pictures on file, but I'm hoping this week's Thematic theme, softness, inspires me to rectify that. Come to think of it, I hope it inspires you, as well!

I find it amusing that a photo - typically rendered on a flat, featureless screen or printed on photographic paper - has no sense of feeling or texture. And I'm guessing over the next week that that's what's going to be especially enjoyable about this particular theme: the challenge of making the viewer feel something through visuals alone.

I overthink this stuff. Maybe I should just get out there with my camera and start shooting. Who's in?

Your turn: Take a softness-themed photo and share it on your blog or website. Leave a comment here letting folks know where to find it. Visit other participants to share the photographic joyness (I really think this should be a word, btw.) If you're new to the wonder of Thematic, click here and all will be explained. Otherwise, enjoy the experience. And please accept my thanks for continuing to make it such a highlight.

To begin with I thought your picture was of snow. It might make you want to snuggle under that eiderdown.
