Deep within a luffa sponge. (Click picture for larger view)
"If you look deep within, you will find a brilliant light. To many, far too many, squint and turn away from the shine. Let your eyes adjust, and bathe in the radiance." ~ UnknownThe luffa (or loofa) sponge originates from the mature fruit of a tropical vining plant after all but the coarse network of xylems is removed. My grandmother grew these in her garden and dried them. They have central tunnel like spaces containing scattered flat round seeds. This macro shot was taken with the lens focused down one of these long spaces revealing the intricate patterns deep inside.
