breathe

Sometimes, when I look at trees (especially certain pictures of trees) such as these, I am startled to discover how strongly they resemble certain aspects of biology - namely, us. Our architecture, if you will. To me, this image imitates a vascular pattern, or perhaps that of a set of lungs... the bronchi branching off into their aveolar beds, the millions of little air sacs filling up with sweet, sweet oxygen.

 

Just thinking about it all makes me breathe deeper.
