I’m always on the lookout for texture, line and design. I found some of that the other day, with this portion of a fence that I photographed. There is depth in this photo, as one can see from the shadows. There are zigs provided by the thin lattice boards in the upper right, and zags (actually, more zigs) of the shadows, that betray the slanted configuration of the vertical boards.
If I were to use this as a reference photo for a painting, I would emphasize the texture and line, and flatten the design to inhabit only one plane.
