Photo Quest August 2023: Texture

We are back from our July summer break with a new photo quest for August. The theme this month is Textures: gentle ripples on water… patterns in the sand… cracking old paint on crumbling stucco… the fibers of fabric…

Textures are a tactile experience in our lives. We are surrounded by them. Look at the many definitions of texture. How can you express their fascination and this experience with the camera?


  • SUBMIT A NEW PHOTO for the quest – no digging in the archives!
  • Your photos MUST be made in the month of August 2023.
  • Color, black & white, DSLR, mirrorless, phone… doesn’t matter.
  • Send high-res JPEG files, good quality, sRGB color space.
  • Photography only, please. No digital art/compositing.
  • Deadline: August 31, 2023.

Before you submit your photo: please take a look at our guide on file names, format, titles, metadata. We expect technically solid photography without obvious flaws and distractions: have fun, but honestly self-evaluate. Hold yourself to high standards and take pride in your work! 

If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask. Happy questing, and we look forward to your submissions.

Our monthly Photo Quest is a members-only photographic scavenger hunt. Current members will receive a submission link in their email with the theme announcement, at the beginning of each month. To take part, please join the Photo Section.
