Travel Theme: Texture, Take Two

By Vladimir Brezina

Ailsa‘s Travel-Themed Photo Challenge this week is Texture. I’ve already posted one response, but here’s another.

A snowy day in New York City’s Central Park…

More photos are here.


At first I wasn’t quite sure how successful “Texture” would be as a theme, but it’s turning out to be one of the best of Ailsa’s themes, in my opinion. Here are some of the dramatic  and subtle Textures that other photographers have come up with:

  2. Love the last picture!

  3. Beautiful! Love the second one particularly.

  4. Beautiful winter wonderland.. :P

  5. Johna Till Johnson

    Love the colors, too! Both “textures” are studies in gray… or grey… whichever nationality you’re being today!

  6. Winter will be here before we know it!

  7. These are absolutely stunning and I have just shivered!

    Love them all but the last one especially. So surreal. The deep layer of snow on the trees is stunning.

  9. Wow to all of them, Vlad. I love your eye for a great photo, and I love New York in the snow. xxx

  10. great shots, the last is the best !

  11. Lovely scenes. Love the last one. It looks like a Christmas card. :)

    • I think it has been used as a Christmas card, actually—not my photo, but similar photos taken by others. I would expect that many NYC photographers have such a photo. There’s an obvious place to take this photo from, so you just have to get there at the right time after a snowfall—as well as arrange the right illumination, of course ;-)

  12. I love looking at snow pictures and these are beautiful, but I don’t think I could live in a cold climate now I am so used to the tropics

  13. Great shots! I like the last one.

  14. Lovely!

  15. I have to say I really love the second one.-….I went also to your Picasa page..As I can not write my comments there I would like to say I love one of the latest pics…The one with a lot of little birds on a fence!!!

  16. Wow! The last one looks like a painting! Thanks for the pingback!

  17. Love the second photo, gives me chills looking at it! I completely agree with you, this theme has worked out great, some of the posts I´ve seen have been very impressive! Thanks for the pingback, G :)

  18. I, too, almost passed … and i can’t stop seeing *textures* everywhere ;) Great pics, as always

  19. The last photo is absolutely STUNNING. I have only seen two big snows where I live. They were just as beautiful. What a lovely challenge. I adore texture.

  20. Wow it’s beautiful! They fit well with the texture theme :)

  21. The snow-covered trees lining the path is such a classic shot!

  22. Ooooh la la!! More stunning snow photos!! Love em!! =)

  23. I´ve visited New York and strolled around Central Park but there was no snow when we were there. My favourite photo you have posted is the last one. It´s wonderful how people are walking through the snowy avenue of trees. Stunning shot, Vladimir – well done!

    Thank you for the pingback, too ;)

  24. These are truly remarkable shots. ;-)

  25. Beautiful pictures! They actually make me look forward to winter. :)

  26. Very pretty photos – and don’t you love the quiet that finally descends, at least for a little while, after a big snowfall in NY?

  28. OMG – I’m speechless. The last one reminds me of a painting by Currier and Ives. Fluffy great …!!!!
