A lot of the time I was walking around during our workshop in Apalachicola, I was looking for different textures to shoot.  I personally like images of texture, but I also may be able to do something else with these images down the road.  I may use these as texture overlays on some of my other images...you never know. ;)

Here are a few I took with my Canon 7D and Tamron 16-300mm Lens.  

Some of these items are tree trunks, rusty boats, chains, signs, etc.  I just simply zoomed in and got close to capture a certain portion of the texture I liked.  Shooting textures is a great way to get outside of your box, create images you can use for multiple purposes and it may even help you out of a creative funk.
