Some Royal Textures

The Word Press Photo challenge this week is the word ‘texture“.  I thought a good response would be the textures on view at the Royal Winter Fair in Toronto.

The softness of the hair known as the feathers on the horse’s legs and the hardness of the steel horse shoe.

The folds of fabric decorating the boxes in the stadium.

The grooming of the sheep for showing is meticulous.  I can almost feel that soft wool.

    Great photos. Love the one of shearing. That is hard to do. Sheared a sheep or two in Ireland and was afraid I was going to do more then shear it.
