I have always loved this shape and when my art instrution talked about psi and nature, it just clicks for me. Beautiful shot and I love it in BW.

I always think we can leave the place we've been a little bit better than it was before we came to it.

We're supposed to learn from our past, not ignore it. Love the photo in b&w.

great quote. i don't want to let my imagination run too wild when thinking about the crawling things that lived in those spirals but the b&w is fantastic and the shapes are beautiful.
