Texture- we use this word quite often and perhaps, nobody treats this word other than a trivial one. But, have you ever mulled over the fact that everything has a texture of its own. The texture is the very basic scheme or structure of anything under the sun. While I was strolling around the beach of Digha, West Bengal, a month ago, I was astonished by the textural features of the beach. The continuous journey of the waves along with the tides has reflected in a motley of textures on the sand, making it variegated in colours and patterns.
The rocks look different; sometimes they are covered with sand, dry and dusty, and sometimes a sudden splash of waves makes them look rich and sumptuous.
The last picture is of a low, derelict wall which stood alone by the coastline hiding among bushes. The green algae and mosses have artfully decorated it.
