The Prospect of Being Under Control. Barrie Dale Wildhaven
This is a high-magnification image of the Orchid'Phalaenopsis'. It was taken in natural light, without manipulation. The camera was hand-held to give freedom of expression.

At high magnification images are abstract and arbitrary. I choose only those that have'meaning'. This is less subjective than selecting on the basis of'beauty'.

So, what is the'meaning'of this image? My first thought was that it reminds us that we may all be subject to forces that we do not know about, and would not be able to understand.
