October 2012 Photo Contest

The temperatures are starting to drop here in Montana, and I'm eagerly eyeing my wooly hats and cable-knit sweaters that have sat dormant since...June (ha! But I do love Montana). Looking at them, I'm captivated by all the wonderful TEXTURES. So that's the inspiration for this month's contest. Your photos must include:

1) the sleek, shiny aluminum of an Airstream, juxtaposed with...

2) some distinctive contrasting texture(s).

That could mean a bed of fallen aspen leaves, a coarse, nubby AstroTurf welcome mat, the silky curls of your Portuguese water dog, whatever. Close-ups and interesting angles are strongly encouraged!!

So that's it. The theme itself is simple, but I hope to see some super creative, artistic shots. If the winner really hits a home run, I'm willing to pass on the Airstream belt buckle I made

Can't wait to see what you've got!

Is this what you have in mind or am I missing the idea? Does the photo need to include an Airstream?

I'll play

Desert Texture and then a couple that are up close and personal...
Spring latch on inside of bumper storage and top of license plate light. The beauty of an aging airstream has texture... (but not all is desireable)

Sure hope ol' Sandlapper tosses a couple out here. Not fair to comment without pics I say!
