Organic Chaos

August 31, 2005

The Magnolia flowers at the Mt. Lofty Botanic Gardens are now more plentiful than they were a couple of weeks ago.

For me, the intriguing thing about these branches is how the underlying regular structure is modified by small random variations, producing a chaotic seeming whole. A small variation in gap between stems here, a slightly different angle there, and the whole thing adds up to a very organic structure.

For Photo Friday's Chaos.
