Focusing on Texture

When taking photos while traveling, don't forget to look down! Sometimes great shots are under your feet, like this wooden door on a felucca sailing down the Nile in Cairo | www.carriereedphotosblog.com

The other night we took a felucca ride down the Nile River in Cairo. Feluccas are Egyptian sailboats and sailing in them at sunset is a very popular pastime among locals and tourists alike. Along with all the wide landscape, sunset, and full boat shots I took, I also focused on some of the details. I like finding the small details or interesting colors or textures that make a site unique and help tell the story. The boat was partially blue and this door in the floor caught my eye. I love how it being all blue makes you focus on the texture of the wood.

Don’t forget to look down when taking photos! Sometimes great shots are under your feet.
