Weekly Photo Challenge: From Lines to Patterns

One of my favorite museums in Raleigh, NC is the NC Museum of Natural Sciences.  Your eyes can’t help but notice all the lines as they converge into patterns whether it is the teak wood (I think) wavy bench seating to the curvilinear staircase to lines and patterns in the exhibits themselves.  Bring your camera and see what you can find!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Merge

Wet merges into dry.  Sunlight merges into shadow.  Sea life finds human life.  The ferocious fictitious shark on the right can’t harm the real, yet tender Harbor seal on the left.  What separates our life from those who call the sea home?  Glass?  Air?  Water?   Whom should we fear in life?  Whom should we love?  In this photo, Curiosity and Life merge into Understanding though they live in two different world elements:  Water and Earth

I took this picture with a Canon Eos Digital Rebel camera f/4, 1/80 sec., ISO 400, 75 mm lens, and no flash.   That’s the “stats” but the TRUTH of the matter is, I just clicked the camera and got lucky.
