Once I inadvertently spotted the first one, my mind became acutely aware, my eyes opened and I began to see.

A simple stroll across the yard to dispose of kitchen garbage, led to a number of textured finds that I wasn’t looking for.
I’d forgotten about the photo challenge and my mind was on other things.
The day had begun with a very early start that had followed an exceptionally late night.
I’d finally finished clearing up after a long and noisy family lunch, the daughters with their children had waved their cheerful goodbyes and I was feeling tired. Disposing of the garbage bag was my final chore before a much needed and much wanted return to my bed.
Lowering the lid of the bin I turned around and saw it, I bent down to have a closer look and spoke outloud “What an unusual texture!” and then I remembered the photo challenge.
Returning with my camera, my find was immediately ‘snapped’. Absorbing my familar surroundings as though for the first time, I noticed other interesting textures that I pass but never see.
