As we came out of the Great Glass House at the National Botanic Garden of Wales on my walk this week, I looked at the impending weather and took a couple of shots. I had noticed the family in the middle ground but only realised the symmetry of the children running away from each other as part of a game after I had taken the photo.
Those dark clouds did catch up with us but not at this point in our walk when I was still interested in the growth and patterns around me. I particularly like the “paper” textures and “literature” patterns of the silver birch tree bark. I say “literature” because they remind me of language, lines of writing and communication by code.
