We are wired to look for patterns. It’s why we see cloud-animals, and faces in everyday objects. We find regular, repeating, symmetric things pleasing to look at.

I’m always looking out for natural patterns. Lines and regularity among the chaos. And every now and then, I find it. There’s something I really enjoy about making simple compositions. It’s like a breath of fresh air for my eyes. So here’s a recent favourite from a wander through the Brisbane Ranges National Park near Anakie. Lines. Patterns. And a wee ant to tie it all together.
