Pet Photography Project 52, Week 8: Texture

The theme for this week’s Pet Photography Project 52: texture. Again, each photographer was given the freedom to interpret the theme as they saw fit, which can range from adding texture to an image through photo enhancement software to highlighting the texture of a pet’s fur.
