Why I made this image

I have a passion for fine detail. The intricate engravings on the nib of an opulent fountain pen, the complex mechanics of a fine hand-crafted watch, the dance of notes in a Bach concerto – the involvement and convolutions of great craftsmanship intrigue me. The brilliance of these human examples is multiplied in nature. The exquisiteness of a feather, the perfection of pattern, the acuteness of intent. What I value in life is mirrored in what I choose to photograph.
