Looks Like Retinal Degeneration

Camera: Leica M9
Exposure: 1/1000
Aperture: f/3.5
Focal Length: 35mm
ISO: 160

I saw this hedge on a walk and thought of retina.  Yeah, I know… I’m *always* thinking of retina.  But this reminded me of what we see Müller cells doing or retinal pigment epithelial cells doing as retinas undergo the first changes in retinal degeneration like retinitis pigmentosa or age-related macular degeneration.  As individual cells die or start to become stressed in retina, they take on this blocked, or mosaicked pattern.
