Weekly Photo Challenge: Texture


Welcome to my entry for this week’s challenge!  When I saw the subject, I immediately thought of the elephants.  Their rough and wrinkled texture is unlike anything else I have seen, touched or experienced in nature.  It is even more interesting when you consider how that texture ages and becomes even more distinct and featured as the elephant gets older.  I thought I’d try and illustrate that in this photo taken in the Serengeti in January.  This elephant “family” was part of a much larger herd.  I was also trying to give the photo a little texture from front to back by using the depth of field of the camera/lens…..
