beetle’s eye view
you could think about this photo in terms of the kind of symmetry that would cause these leaves to meet exactly at their edges in an almost impossibly perfect union. but after picking a bunch of beetle-chewed leaves this august, i find myself, beetle-like, hungering for the little patches of green between the white veins of these zinnia leaves. like gnawing the tender meat of a pork rib from between the bones.
