…This week, focus on the tactile element of the objects you shoot, whether it’s one distinct quality — softness, smoothness, graininess, or any other texture you find interesting — or a combination of several within one frame. —WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge

Two months ago I was transfixed by a sculptured ceramic panel in a BART station in Richmond, CA. Unfortunately there was a scissor-lift parked in front of it and I was only able to photograph bits and pieces of the wonderful textures and shapes on it.

    Excellent photograph! There are many photographic treasures in the “bits and pieces”. I’m glad you didn’t ignore them.

      Thank you, Galen. It’s always fun to explore the “bits & pieces” and ask myself if I would think to do the same, or go in a different direction.

    Color and texture. Nice combo. I’m surprised you didn’t post kitty pic. I’ve never been to that Bart station. Drive by it a lot, ironically.

      It’s located inside the terminal before you exit the turnstiles. Definitely worth a jaunt from another station.
