The of photo of the left is about the texture of a travertine stone from Bagni di Tivoli, Italy, which also contains the texture of beautiful fossils of plants. I took the photo at the Getty Center in Los Angeles, California. It was used 1.2 million square feet of travertine to construct the Getty Center, and many of these stones revealed fossilized leaves, feathers, and branches when they were split along their natural grain.
The second photo is a tree that I photographed at one of my favorite places in Mexico City, Chapultepec forest, where I love to take promenades surrounded by nature.
