The word of the day for the July 12th Photo-a-Day is texture. The first thing that comes to my mind is the texture of fabrics. Since I know little about fabrics, I searched this morning for textures present in nature. I found a rock covered with lichen, pine cones in a bed of pine needles, and a leaves covered with unsightly galls. However, I chose to display this skeleton of a decayed leaf against the background of the park path.
