No two snowflakes are alike
“Under the microscope, I found that snowflakes were miracles of beauty; and it seemed a shame that this beauty should not be seen and appreciated by others. Every crystal was a masterpiece of design and no one design was ever repeated. When a snowflake melted, that design was forever lost. Just that much beauty was gone, without leaving any record behind… I became possessed with a great desire to show people something of this wonderful loveliness, an ambition to become, in some measure, its preserver.”
Wilson ‘Snowflake’ Bentley
Over the last few days the UK has been in the grip of a big freeze. Many people have been unable to get into work and have opted to work from home. I left the office a couple of days ago and took a few pictures of the almost blizzard like conditions around Rodney Street in Liverpool. I must admit that after the lengthy journey home, followed by the ice-covered pavements, working from home looked like a good idea.
