This week’s Lens-Artists Photo Challenge asks for interpretations of the word layered.
Do I approach it literally with the layers of a macaron or a cafe breakfast?

Hash-browns, mushrooms, eggs; layered to look good on the plate and distribute those delicious runny yolks throughout the dish. Image: Su Leslie 2019
Or stacked container layers, gone awry in high winds?

More broken layers?

Or maybe layers in art?

And then there are layers created by the two-dimensional nature of photography; compressing landscapes into bands of colour and texture.

Not to mention layered images; double-exposures, super-impositions.

Obviously, I couldn’t decide which to focus on.
