The texture of moss: a lesson

I realized just now that the best visual textures have contrast, which creates interest. And I think the most interesting history and stories also have texture, or contrast. We noticed today (or perhaps in my case, noticed again) the contrast throughout Armagh between new and old, particularly regarding architecture. I love to see urban spaces and buildings repurposed instead of torn down and rebuilt, and I think Armagh has done this pretty well (though buildings like the Marketplace Theatre demonstrate some tasteful modern design as well). I’m also intrigued by contrasts between natural and industrial, the man-made and the wild. I love to see them integrated, which I suppose is sort of demonstrated by my interest in the moss in the photo growing on a wall along the road.
