I've been visiting a few photography blogs over the weekend. One of them was Lisa Gordon Photography, whose owner runs a weekly photography exchange. This is an excellent way to see what other bloggers get up to with their cameras and to get in touch with people who enjoy photography as much as I do.

I am going to enter the following picture this week:

I took this during my last photography course, when our homework was to go and explore textures. I went into my little old, decrepit green house in the garden and took a close-up of the moss that is growing on the windows. I love how it turned out to look like a little landscape, with a lake, some trees and leaden sky.

  1. This is great Annika! When I was first looking at it I thought it was something totally else. I never would've guessed that it was moss. Brilliant!

  2. oops, forgot to say, I just saw my button. You're so sweet. Thank you. Let me know if I can do anything in return.

    Have a awesome day Annika!

  3. It does look like a landscape! I love how it turned out. Nice to see you in The Creative Exchange!

  4. It is so nice to meet you Annika, and welcome to The Creative Exchange!

    I would never have thought this was moss! It really does look like a landscape (clouds, and all!). Great image.

    Thank you for linking up today, and have a wonderful day.
