The Ambitious Drifter

Words, Images and The Occasional Noise


The closer you look, the more you see.

What does the word “intricate” mean to you?

Photography has taught me that everything is a fractal. The closer you look, the more you see. I spent a long time looking through my photo archives for suitable photos, there’s so many. There are flowers, temples, artworks and the intriguing patterns I see on the beach. Eventually I narrowed it down to two items. One is tree bark, but I hadn’t fully read the brief, so I was surprised and happy to see ‘deep fibrous bark’ as a suggestion. I must be on the right wavelength.
