Theme Thursday - Surface

Surfaces come in all kinds.

Rain on a pond's surface.


Water drops on an old porcelain sink.


Ice on rock.


Skin - the back of my hand.


Wood - my bamboo chopping block.

And what better tune for a "surface" theme than Cole Porter's "I've Got you Under My Skin" sung by Ol' Blue Eyes? Enjoy!

  17. I found Roy's world via a Cole Porter alert and I am glad I did. I'm a huge fan of Cole's work
    so I thank Roy for the video; loved it.
    I recently helped restore Cole's Birthplace in Peru, In.
    Anyway, Roy, I enjoyed your photos very much.
