Levelling Up
8 September 2022

Simple lines and angles can become complex when you view from specific perspectives. And there’s nothing like some basic, simple, garden variety light to turn the most functional possible thing into something beautiful. I obviously like my nature shots and spending time outdoors. But there is a lot to be said for manmade beauty. Nature is beautiful by default. It can’t help but be pretty. But for a human to create something of beauty and value takes work. It’s deliberate. A whole series of decisions, and a whole lot of work to back up those decisions. Only then something amazing or noteworthy can happen. All nature has to do is sit there. Lazy, if you ask me.

Peter van der Walt is a fiction author, although you may find some non-fiction and the odd essay out there. Fans can find his newsletter, posts, updates and developments at petervanderwalt.com. Currently, he is hard at work on his next story. When not writing, he has far too many interests to reasonably keep up with. He lives with his partner in Devon, England.
