Lines, curves, and waves

Uploaded: December 09, 2009


There is a unique structure at the Georgia Aquarium in Atlanta in the center room. The art pieces has a rotating set of lights that vary by the season. Since it's winter / Christmas time, the colors currently rotate between red and white.

Every time I go, I am fixated by this art / structure and like exploring various angles of capturing them. I was pretty pleased with both the angle and the timing of the lights on this one
