THE TREES

Death and decay have their own beauty.  

 

 COBWEBS

These are pictures of cobwebs taken around the house.  A program randomly chooses 12 of them from the group.  Another program randomly chooses a palette of 12 colors from Crayola crayons.  A specific color is randomly assigned to each cobweb and then they are layered one upon another.

 

CREEKS

The procedure for the creeks is the same as the cobwebs, however, these are all pictures of Bolin Creek in Chapel Hill.
