succulent (patterns in nature)

We Orientals find beauty not only in the thing itself but in the pattern of the shadows, the light and darkness which that thing provides.  ~Junichiro Tanizaki

This image and corresponding quote remind me to look closely at those things around me. Often there is amazing artwork at our feet or in a flicker of light through the tree branches. Lines and shadow can do astonishing things.
