I found your layers quite insightful but just wondered you choose what layers to reveal? And why focus on the number nine? Its just that number has cropped up in a few blogs I've seen recently why not ten or twelve (that being said I often question the decimal scale as opposed to imperial I guess we have to choose some measure).
