We had so much fun with the last textures post that on a recent trip to Alaska and Vancouver Island we couldn’t stop thinking about how the texture of a place should be unique and special. Texture should tell you something about the people, the place, the weather… and Alaska didn’t let us down. In addition to taking in some visual eye candy – consider how your favorite places have textures all their own.
