Figure of X
Normally we notice cracks happening in the walls and may opt for repair or ignore it (since constructing a new wall is a costly affair).
The photographer in me, instead of giving importance to the wall that is getting damaged, decided to admire the wonder of nature as the fissure is taking the shape of the letter X.
Looks like I am going crazy.
Or maybe that is how art evolves. (I deserve a pat on the back!!).
And that is the reason-Beauty in the eyes of the beholder
Do you know that there is a much sought after X shaped body? (also known as hour glass body)
The figure X would have looked attractive if it had equal limbs & this X looks odd
But Mother Nature has different plans for this X in the image above.
Nature has decided that upper arms should be longer and lower arms shorter.
I am not sure whether any physical properties of construction material is responsible for this type of X fissure.
Mother Nature’s ways are unexplainable!
“Don’t allow your life to become just a dead ritual. Let there be moments, unexplainable.”
