Natural History Museum Shell

At the suggestion of one of the 'Love Photography' group members, I've cropped this to focus on the the main radial structure. Better I believe.

    Reminds me of the sketches in a fabulous book called "On growth and form" that looks at geometry in nature. The soft, natural light and limited color palette make this very effective.

  • Alain G 9y

    nice "phi" picture
  • Monique van der Lint 9y

    can't stop looking at it!

    THis is an awesome picture that shows the beauty of the golden ratio. I was hoping that I could get the picture in a larger size so I could put it in my school project relating math to the golden section. I f that is possible, please leave me a message. Thanks.
