Thematic Photographic 250 - In rough shape

Barking up the right tree
Laval, QC
May 2013
I'm not usually one for milestones, but I noticed we've reached 250 Thematics in just over 5 years.

Thank you all for being part of this often meandering photographic journey. It thrills me to no end that something as simple as a photo sharing activity can connect folks around the world in such a gentle way. It adds a whole new dimension to my own shooting, and I imagine I'm not alone in that. I'm deeply grateful for your continued encouragement.

We'll go with textures this week - in rough shape celebrates the imperfect, gritty reality that often greets us as we go through the day-to-day. The world has no shortage of roughness, and over the next week I hope we'll have fun translating its decidedly 3-dimensional form into the 2-dimensional world of photography.

Here's to another 250...are you game?

Your turn: Share a rough-themed photo on your own blog, website or any other online resource, then leave a comment here letting everyone know where to find it. Visit other participants and feel free to drop back in through the week - multiple-sharing is encouraged. Head here if you're new to the Thematic thing, or if you'd like a refresher. Enjoy the show...we'll be here all week!

Your post on the old Mill building reminded me of the high school I taught at. I got a chance to get back into it today, so here is my second entry for this theme.
