I take a lot of texture photos. From a compositional standpoint, they are interesting, but often look more like wallpaper or the beginning of a fabric design than a proper photograph. Flowers, fields, and repetitive design can do the job. I also enjoy textures in monochrome.

Sometimes, though, the most amazing texture is in macro, where the lily is both form and texture for the photograph.
