Photograph on Paper - When walking on the beaches.. Virginia, North Carolina, Florida, and Cost Rica, there are certain times of day, ebb and flow, sediment viscosity, conditions for Nature to create beautiful but temporary drawings. The patterns I have photographed are fractals in nature that repeat on the beach, on the river deltas, on the mountain ranges, all over our earth and on other planets that have ever had running water. A fractal is a natural phenomenon or a mathematical set that exhibits a repeating pattern that displays at every scale. It is also known as expanding symmetry or evolving symmetry. If the replication is exactly the same at every scale, it is called a self-similar pattern.
