The kids chose Texture as the penultimate theme of this weeks SummerPhotoFun which was a great theme I thought. I like it when the themes they choose can be interpreted in so many different ways depending upon how you see the world and texture is a classic sample of that, everything you see or touch has an element of texture to it be it part of the built environment or something natural. What could me more natural than an animal and the photo of the octopus is surely an amazing example of the variety of textures contained with the animal kingdom. Texture can also bring out the absolute beauty in the simplest things that we take for granted, brick, slate, wood, plastic, sand, wool, stone and plastic all look amazing when looked at as they are and then of course they change again when constructed into something, the incredible shape and texture of the bullring in Birmingham or the sand sculpture of Einstein for example. I really enjoyed this weeks theme and as always huge thanks to everyone who contributed.
