17 Inspiring Photos of Texture

by Grace Bonney

It’s hard to predict what will inspire people the most when it comes to photography online. Sometimes the most specific concepts yield the most impressive results and, other times, something more open and vague, like the idea of texture, can produce the most incredible images. Texture was this month’s DS Hashtag Challenge and I was blown away to see the over 5,000 images that were shared in less than a month. From stunning still-life photos of mushrooms and flowers to the tiniest cat whiskers and footprints, you all were able to capture moments in time that were not only beautiful, but showed just how big of a role texture plays in art and design. This was one of my favorite challenges to date and I can’t wait to keep watching this feed as it grows along. Thank you so much to everyone who shared these photos, and more, with us. xo, grace
