Five Dollars, a Dead Cactus and a Leaf

The weekly photo challenge for The Daily Post is to show lines, patterns and texture. Here is my interpretation of the challenge.

I took close-up photos of a U.S. five dollar bill to show the lines, textures and patterns that are generally missed by the naked eye.

These are images of a cholla cactus skeleton. After all the succulent flesh and spines dry up and fall off, this is what’s left. I love the texture and pattern.

I took close-ups of a Hawaiian Ti leaf, one newly emerged and the other aging. The colors and lines are amazing.

  4. I’ve been meaning to check out your blog more, aside from the Trifecta posts. I’m glad I did- these photos are awesome! My older son had quite the collection of cholla skeletons- they are pretty neat. We saw Ti plants when we went to Maui last year…I never would’ve thought to take close ups of the leaves.
