intricate


solo post by L (photography without a camera)

"It is very easy to tell the difference between man-made and God-made objects. The more you magnify man-made objects, the cruder they look, but the more you magnify God-made objects, the more precise and intricate they appear." -Luther Sutherland

That quote is very interesting! Gets you thinking...

Char said...

so very gorgeous and well done. I love the quote too and find it to be oh so true. examine man-made and you can find flaws and errors....but who can find anything wrong when you look into the eyes of a child or the heart of a flower.

Very pretty! Great quote!

Relyn said...

That is the most incredible quote. Thank you so much for sharing it. And your photo - oh my! Gorgeous!

Leslye, I like this post, both the image and the quote. It sort of relates to something the children brought home from school recently, a Chagall quote: "Great art picks up where nature ends." There is something a little off about that to me, since it seems to imply that the creature can improve on Creator's handiwork. But of course, our urge and ability to create art are sometimes seen as part of what it means to be made in His image.
