One Word Photo Challenge: Koru

dsc_082201x

Good morning from a cool sunny day here in Hastings.

This week Jennifer has given us the word ‘depth’.  For my photo I am showing depth of field, while there is hidden depth to this Koru –

The koru, which is often used in Māori art as a symbol of creation, is based on the shape of an unfurling fern frond. Its circular shape conveys the idea of perpetual movement, and its inward coil suggests a return to the point of origin. The koru therefore symbolises the way in which life both changes and stays the same.
