CRACKED: Maybe I am a Little......

I have been collecting photos of cracks for a long time.
So I decided it was time to give them an airing!

I really only know two things about cracks.
1) if the material is soft, the cracklings tend towards 120 degrees.

2) if the material is hard, the cracking tends towards 90 degrees.

That's some kind of natural law & I love it.

So here goes.....



 lava pillows...


 really old cracks inhabited by moss...

totally fake cracks!

more than a crack... a smash below!









 raccoon





 dog/wolf?




 tundra cracks


 maybe these two don't count...



 ..in the one above most of the lines come together in 3s, suggesting softness of the mud material...you see these kinds of lines a lot from the air.


 volcanic ash pillows

... this below is almost like the classic ceramic crack-glaze... so squared off...
 cloth... I think the wax cracked... & let some dye through....






 ...classic mud/clay...


 

That's it for now.
