Travel Theme: Texture

This week, Ailsa‘s Travel Theme Photo Challenge is Texture.

I love texture and have some need of feeling it. My husband thinks it’s funny that I need to touch everything that has a different texture. And I do need! Otherwise, it’s no fun. 😉

I also try to take pictures of things I think has an interesting texture. Not all pictures turn out good, but sometimes I do get a few nice (or at least ok) ones.

Here are 3 of them that I took when traveling around.

Volcanic rocks, in Central Oregon
