Texture can come in many forms

All variations of texture surround you daily, yet most of us are unaware of them. We 'see' something we like, or we may 'admire' an object, a length of fabric or perhaps even a tree. But look at the actual "texture" of the object.

Texture can come in many forms, it can be .....

A structure of interwoven fibers or other elements. 

The distinctive physical composition or structure of something, especially with respect to the size, shape, and arrangement of its parts: like the texture of sandy soil or the texture of cooked fish.
The appearance and feel of a surface: like the smooth texture of soap.
A rough or grainy surface quality: like the brick walls that give a room texture.
On our walk last Sunday we noticed there were many "textures" or "textured surfaces" around us.

The corrosion on the old bucket and the leaves that have fallen ...
 a brand new leaf and an old rotting window frame ......
a very old and rusty handrail and the bricks of a retaining wall.
 the rocks of the embankment and an old brick wall.
the roots of a large tree, or the rust and moss in the waterway.
the sun through the trees as it touches the path can be considered a "textured pattern" as does the set of old steps.
 or the trunk of the tree and the metal of the statue .....

all of the above are the textures and textured surfaces we noticed on the walk we did last Sunday as part of the Battle of Pasir Panjang Commemorative Walk.
