I don't think I have ever shared this uncropped original photograph before. Low resolution but still effective. I like how the tail curls around the girder.

cycad logic

I have one of those strange brains that sees and hears patterns in everything. As a kid I could stare at mold on the wall or the random formations in an acoustic ceiling for hours on end and see a myriad of familiar forms and faces. I have caught myself grooving to the symphony of the aberrant noises my washing machine makes when it starts knocking. Puts Stockhausen to shame. Clouds, tree shapes, I strive to find compositional order in chaos.

I saw these spiralling new shoots of a sago palm yesterday and decided to try to capture their beautiful art deco like forms. Hope that you enjoy them.
