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