Brownian Motion

Ahhh, Brownian motion, does this concept not bring memories of childhood? I think this is the one of the first concepts I was taught in science. This image reminded me drawing little dots randomly in a box. The image is of out-of-focus raindrops reflecting sunlight. I’m not sure why they look like hexagons, maybe because of Fujifilm’s Super CCD?
