American Gothic

Unlike the Mona Lisa, poerfectly approachable and photographable. Given its myriad derogatories, derivatives, inspirationals and tributes, the original has held up. No, it's not mind blowing, but it is quite clever.

A linga, or lingam; symbol of the god Shiva.

It's also a wonderful example of geometric progression.

Title only really makes sense if you know what "zie: de maan schijnt door de bomen" entails. Or entales. Both work, really.

An icy vista

Because why don't you visit the Chicago Botanical Garden in mid-winter, why not?

A lovely texture

So soft, very responsive, much lovely.
