My Weekly Gallery Updates are about sharing photos I’ve added to the gallery section of this site. The galleries are my way of creating a visual approach to searching for hikes by having collections of photos that link to information about hiking to where each photo was taken.
This week I’ve added five photos to the Details, Patterns, and Textures Gallery. Perhaps due to my training in architecture, I spend a lot of time looking at my surroundings at different levels of detail. Most of the photos I share on this site are intended to give a broad overview of the terrain and views that a particular hike or hiking experience encompasses. However I also enjoy looking at the elements around me. I might look at the trunk of a tree and see an interesting pattern or texture, or I might see a natural assembly of elements that form a composition I enjoy looking at, or I might just find myself focusing on one part of something–e.g. the charred roots of a tree that is still very much alive.
