Remarkable texture, well defined in B&W. Your image makes one pause to appreciate the patterns of nature, while most would just walk by. Nice one, Jack.

These sort of uneven abstracts are always fun to look at. Like when I keep on looking at this one I can see at least three faces here, a woman, sleeping man, and a child.

@Ajay: Abstracts are fun indeed.
