Just as I described sometimes wanting to do more with The Photographicalist , sometimes I want to do less. When this mood assails me, it is a great opportunity for me to explore another of my interests – synergy and symmetry between ideas, patterns, landscapes, people, lines, curves, functions. The idea is to find ways to illustrate photographically how patterns repeat in nature and society.
So occasionally I will forgo the essay and assemble a set of photographs that have aligned sympathies in some facet of their essence.
The inaugural ‘matched set’ appears below. I have entitled it Nature’s mellow, yellow-gold, because nature seems to love these hues.
