amazing...I wonder how long it took to get to this stage
Not as long as one might imagine. Since discovering this local phenomenon, I've noticed that the city comes by with regularity to scrape nails off.
Is this part of some Floridaian religious ritual?
Yes, and our totem-making happens early every Saturday morning.
I like the contrasting textures and natural tones/colours. In the right setting, I'd like a print or photo-realist painting of this better than a lot of art I've seen.I see beauty in this image that I wouldn't have noted on the pole when walking by it . Do you find this contained image beautiful?
Actually, you're one of several people who have suggested that they'd like to see this wall-size. Perhaps in a board room.
