Weekly Photo Challenge: Texture This week, share a texture found in an unexpected place. It could be made of natural materials, as in these images, or with man-made objects. This is a great opportunity to look at the world in a slightly different way — along with looking at things from new angles, zooming very far out or very far in are both great ways to create texture and pattern in photos.
This is an easy one for me! I like textures and see them everywhere. Is there anything without texture? Even smooth is a type of texture. The main challenge is to narrow it down to a manageable number of photos.

The white highlights add to the textured look of this fern fiddlehead.
We rescued a lot of ginger plants from the trash, and this one has made the first flowers. The edges of the petals have a hairy texture.
