Coconut Husk

Photography by Doug Couvillion: A mostly emptied half of a coconut husk laying on the ground

Sometimes seemingly random items catch my eye.  When I noticed this open coconut laying on the ground something drew me to it.  Maybe it was the contrast of textures and colors?  The rough, fibers of the husk surround the smooth interior of the coconut shell and the rich brown shell encases the milky white remains of the nut.

Here’s my Abstract submission to the Weekly Photo Challenge.  I’m calling it Bananascape.


Inside The Sycamore

From the other side this sycamore looks solid and nearly invincible.  When walking around it you quickly discover there’s a gap at least 5 feet in length, exposing the inside of the tree.


Old Decking

This was wooden decking may have been part of a boat, long ago.  Now it sits, slowly decaying along the shore of the river.

Glimpse At The Impermanence Of A Trailer

I like the color, the texture and the irony of this photo.  The irony that the bolt, which helps hold the trailer together, required a hole to be drilled through the metal, which is ultimately causing it to fall apart.

If you click on the image you can see a larger version of it, which really highlights the texture.


Fly Silhouette On Palm Leaf

I saw this fly walking along a palm leaf and decided to try out some macro shots.  I wasn’t happy with any of the more traditional photos I took but liked this one, taken from the underside of the leaf.
