Today

“It frequently happens ... — and this is one of the charms of photography — that the operator himself discovers on examination, perhaps long afterwards, that he has depicted many things he had no notion of at the time.”
[William Henry Fox Talbot, The Pencil of Nature. 1844–1846, London: Longman, Brown, Green.]

I'm thinking you've revealed a form of Fibonacci spirals and angry leaf eyes. Not to mention that your feet are a lot smaller than Dale's size 10½. :-)

I love this, both the photo and the quote. I believe the quote pertains to mental as well as photo images.

Nice one.
The same goes for existence? "...himself discovers on examination, perhaps long afterwards, that he has experienced many things that he had not much notion of at the time..."
