In which I pretend to be a serious photography hobbiest and attempt to only take photos of texture.

The Marshmallow Test is a well-known psychological experiment that studies delayed gratification. Essentially, a child is given a marshmallow and told that they can eat it immediately or wait several minutes and be given a second marshmallow to eat.
