on holiday: do my eyes deceive me?

i think i'm doing a good job of not doing any mathematics, during my holiday.  on the other hand, i think my mind's gone to wandering and i'm starting to overanalyse things and see things that aren't there.

for example, in brugge:

when i saw these tiles floating on the lawn, i immediately thought of whitney cube decompositions .. even though the cubes were not shrinking in diameter, as they approached the boundary ..


these look like the best kind of embedding to me .. that of apples being embedded into crepes!
