Patterns and Symbols

We are symbols, and inhabit symbols.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

What amazes me when I'm out photographing in nature is the occurrences of patterns and symbols. Further, the meaning we put to them. Not everyone will see the same symbol in a pattern, but often there is a enough of a sharing to make it sing for the persons viewing it.

When I saw this pattern, it very quickly became a powerful feminine symbol. Again not everyone may see the same thing as I did and do. But it echoes with meaning of earthly sensuality and I've gained insight into myself from what was revealed through the light captured by my camera.
