The root system of a plant is usually as large and often more intricate than a plant itself. As roots exist underground, they are rarely used as photographic subjects.
One of my parental units has been interested in the foundations of logic and has been working on a piece called The Roots of Sound Rational Thinking. This work contends that many of the problems of our day are the result of root errors in our system of thinking.
As a result of this work, I have been asked to take photographs of roots. Perhaps I might take a picture that will serve as the cover for the piece.
