oh this is so neat. it's like one of those images that presents 3D figures when you look at it with crossed eyes, and yet as i stared, i only went deeper into the sandy brick.

Chocolate battenburg cake!

I love the textures and layers and the drawing in of the eye that all happen in the focussing but its darn hard work too:0)

Such rich density found midst light seems pretty good metaphor and illustration for focussing. The thing I noticed most was the lack of hard edges and that focus can be gentle and soft and offer such riches as these.

Wow! great picture. It looks like lichen on a tree to me... but of course it may not be. And it looks a bit like a sandy beach or a forgotten sponge. Cool.

Thanks g :) yes - it's quite unravelling isn't it?

D-W, I hadn't thought too much about the metaphor, or at least not consciously, but you're right of course!

PSB, yes, it's lichen, on a wall by the river down here, but really quite spectacular. I hadn't left the context out deliberately, but I'm glad I did now, I'm sure I take quite a lot of pictures like that, open to interpretation.
