Textures – Taking a Different Perspective at the Fresh Market
Whoever thought a market is just all about buying onions and potatoes? Or sorting out a bunch of crispy lettuce from under the mound of greens? There is more than just the mundane at a fresh market!
There is colour. There is pattern. And,… there is Texture That’s what came to my mind, as I read this week’s The Daily Post Photo Challenge on Texture. I took a different perspective while buying my weekly groceries, ie. exploring texture.
As Natalie (from the Daily Post) says ‘This is a great opportunity to look at the world in a slightly different way — along with looking at things from new angles, zooming very far out or very far in are both great ways to create texture and pattern in photos.’
Here is my entry.
Texture: Coarse vs. Smooth
The ubiquitous tropical fruit, Coconut has a grainy, coarse tough outer shell. It protects the soft, milky white flesh inside.
Just like in the coconut, the hard coarse covering hides the soft inner flesh, so too sometimes people can be very kind and loving deep inside, but may appear hard and rough on exterior. So ‘Don’t judge a book by its cover.’

Do you like the texture of a coconut ? What analogies come to your mind?
Now, let the onion skins speak a little too.
Texture: Crispy, flaky – Natural vs. Man-made
Yesterday I bought a bag of Onions, little did I know I would use them for a photo challenge.
I liked the crispy plastic netting of the bag. Never to crumple -plastic. But when flaky onion skins scattered all over the kitchen floor, to make a colourful mess 🙂 I remained calm. Just brought out my camera.
Taking a different perspective on Texture. Thanks to the Daily Post Photo Challenge.

And here is a close up. Don’t you feel like crumbling them with your fingers?
What do my viewers think about my perspective ?
Can you suggest some other fruits and vegetables that have similar textures?
