The Symmetry of Nature

December 6, 2011

This picture was taken in October during Chicago Ideas Week on a tour of the Chicago Botanic Gardens. I used my 3-year old Canon PowerShot SD1200 to capture the symmetry provided by the reflection of nature (trees & clouds) on itself (water). Which is the land, which is the water? Similar to the t-shirt image below, enjoy the Symmetry of Nature:

The picture was inspired by a shirt I bought from Threadless.com last year. I knew someday I’d find a real life view. Check out the design:
