One of the things I loved most about my hikes around the Washington Pass area were the gnarled and twisted trees that populated the mountain tops, so I went looking for other swirly, twirly, bendy photos I’ve taken on my travels. The frothy, ribboned edges of Yellowstone‘s Emerald Pool was the first one that sprang to mind.
Twisting ribbons around a giant maypole on May Day in Seattle.
A long and winding road through Zion National Park.
A couple weave and twist around each other in a secret tango along Seattle‘s waterfront.
A serpentine bench in New York‘s Battery Park.

I believe in fairy tales. They are the basis of all our performance, of storytelling and filmmaking – when we twist the real events of the world into something that offers us hope – and I believe in that. – Charles Sturridge
In the context of general relativity, space almost is a substance. It can bend and twist and stretch, and probably the best way to think about space is to just kind of imagine a big piece of rubber that you can pull and twist and bend. – Alan Guth
