Imperfect symmetry

Photos of snowflakes offer a contemplative moment.

Brushes with other snow crystals, changes in humidity and temperature, the effects of sublimation and the trauma of landing on earth all take a random toll on their crystalline structure. Like us mortals, snowflakes show the wear and tear - but also polish and glitter - of the cumulative effects of existence. They emerge from their experience unique, irregular, complex.
