Palm trunks

Palm trunk

Santa Monica, California.

We took a walk along the Santa Monica palisades and I noticed two palm trees with unusual rings on them. I took both RAW and high contrast JPEG images and these high contrast versions looked great to me. The grain added more texture to what was already interesting textured patterns.

Sitting in the sun with a nice ocean breeze was quite a contrast from driving to JFK yesterday morning after the snow storm. I had to blow a foot of snow off our driveway at 4:00 am. just to get the truck out.

    1. Thanks Jonne. The filter really is a dramatic effect and almost too much but I couldn’t help myself, I really liked the way it made these look. I agree, fabrics is exactly right. Maybe like “washi” which is Japanese fiber paper.
