Itsy Bitsy Snowflings

Today, I will show to you, some amazing photographs, taken by a very curious man, William Bentley. He took pictures of individual snowflakes his entire life basically. My favorite, by far, is this one:

What I love best about his work is his attention to detail. Each one of his snowflakes are catalogued and named. Each is given the same amount of care.They are all so different, and he appreciated and acknowledged those differences. Each snowflake is just as different as each person that walks this earth, and that is what he saw when he started taking these pictures. He saw something beautiful in them that others realized and began to appreciate once he started taking these pictures. I love that.
