i like grit

how does one photograph grit? i’m not talking about grits, the delicacy of the south. i’m talking about a grittyness that can be felt by looking at the photo. feeling grit in your shoes....sand, dirt, and small pebbles. walking with small pebbles feels gritty. i want to make photos of cyclocross racing that makes it feel like you have small pebbles in your shoes. are you uncomfortable? does that make your feet hurt? if so, good. it’s working.
