view to a thrill

kaleidoscope

This is a view from the new kaleidoscope at the RMSC.  I thought it was pretty impressive when it was first installed.  Generally, there are a lot of kids having fun with it but, on this day, I was fortunate to get some shots before folks started coming in to see it.

      Thanks, ehpem. I should do a shot movie someday as the colors change as it spins via a liquid in the lens. It’s fascinating to watch.

    I love the (nearly) precise symmetry of this, Ken. I thought it was exact to begin with and then as I studied it some more I noted the occasional asymmetry too. That adds something…….

      Thanks, Andy. I couldn’t help the symmetry as my lens was right up against the viewer on the kaleidoscope. I’d like to go back on a sunnier day to re-photograph it.

    Like a dramatic beehive….shall I ask the silly question: how did you capture this pic? (Oh, sorry, just saw your answer to LenScaper….duh!) Fascinating stuff. Reminds me just a little of fractals some of which can be really fascinating.
    PS: I notice your calendar is very ordered too…. 😉

      Thanks, Janina. It reminded me of fractals, too. The order is not intentional but it just turns out that I can post on Monday and Thursday because of other life-related stuff. I hadn’t noticed it until you pointed it out!
