Cogs and wheels

Saw The Imitation Game today, Benedict Cumberbatch as Alan Turing. He was good and it was good (although I understand there are some historical inaccuracies, it's based on a true story which flags liberties...)

The gears and wheels of the computer he built reminded me of this photo. It's from an old ?farm machine now located in the garden of a local history museum. I liked the patterning of it, the shapes and repetitions. I named this blog a long time ago now, but I am still fascinated and inspired by patterns in the world. It's a very human trait, for all sorts of reasons from economy of effort to imbuing harmony and seeking peace and order.
