Photo date: May 7, 2020. Photographer: Mark Mahin.
I took the photos below while photographing only ordinary drops of pure, clean water falling in front of a black featureless background. We see a two-part orb pattern that I got in almost all of hundreds of consecutive photos. This was an example of a pattern becoming less complex, the pattern being preceded by a pattern that looked identical except for one additional element. On different days I observe both patterns become more complex, and patterns becoming less complex.
