Tree Trunks

Palm trees are fascinating to me. Almost every part of them is edible by either humans or animals, or they can be used to make all manner of useful items. The trunks of palm trees are not smooth or ridged like other trees but lumpy with knots formed by the fronds that have either fallen or been chopped off. Unusual texture.

The contrast of textures in this shot is wonderful.

Everything in Egypt seems to be used fully. Don't know if you've had an opportunity to see Garbage Dreams yet, a movie about the Zaballeen, who claim to recycle 80% of the garbage they pick up in Cairo.
