Black and White Photo Challenge: Texture

This week’s Black and White Challenge at Sonel’s Corner is Texture.

Sonel’s choice to have this challenge in B&W is great; when color is removed from an image, we concentrate more on the quality of the image and the texture of the objects on the photo.DSC_0204A

At Ta Prohm, Angkor Wat the walls and trees form a system which depends on each other. The trees grow around, on and in the walls. Removal of the trees would probably destabilize the walls but some trees growing abnormally, for instance, tilted at an angle or trying to force the masonry blocks apart which may stress the walls and destabilize them.DSC_0218

The walls have a rough texture but some of the carvings on the walls have a finer texture.

The giant roots which engulf the wall also have a texture which is quite characteristic. Together, they give an eerie and crumpling feel . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .  .
