The texture of an object is often what makes it photographically interesting. That play of light and shadow along with color is what makes for a successful photograph. The surface of everything, whether in nature or man made, has texture. It is the visible or tactile quality of the surface. Black and white images usually allow for the texture of the subject to be more perceivable because the distraction of color is gone.

Here are a few images of man made things that I like for their interesting texture. Which is your favorite?
