# Is there a geometric argument that the Legendre transform of a convex function is convex?

I am trying to build intuition on Legendre transforms. Arnold's Mathematical Methods of Classical Mechanics has some nice geometric interpretations, but he does not provide a proof that the Legendre transform of a convex function is convex. I know we can prove it by applying some inequalities, but is there a nice geometric argument (with a picture) that allows us to see that it is true?
