    frozen photon traces…

    …the perfect picture would have several characteristics:

    What about a control one also, with a measuring / survey stick for scale and possibly a colour chart for leaf and flower matching (date as well, plus GPS, soil salinity, acidity, etc?)

    PS: looks pretty fractal to me – for ‘random sprawling nature’ I read ‘adventitious sun seeking’…

    PPS: please ignore all pushes to deregulate branch bi & trifurcation, thats one canopy ya don’t wanna open…

    at a tangent...

    fountain pen
    does anyone still use one?

    a soda fountain?
    or a drug store?
    spare a tear for
    the soda jerk
    all shook up
    and outta work
    :- )

    going further aside:
    I do miss milkshakes
    with icecream in
    cold metal dispensers
    The Blue Mill...

    frequency, what’s your number?
    resonant vessels make more noise…
    …everything resonates,
    life a resounding success is
    long may it ring one!

    this book: Music and the Making of Modern Science is a very interesting read, so far…

    Music is notionally the notation of all the Muses …

    hmmmm…
