Weekly Photo Challenge: Lost in the Details

A few weeks ago, we took the kids to one of our favorite museums – the Tellus Science Museum in Cartersville, Georgia.  Among the great displays of minerals and dinosaur bones, there’s a space in the museum dedicated to old cars.  We usually pass by the cars only to get to the room where the kids can pan for fake gems.

But on this last visit to Tellus, I took the time to visit these shiny, restored vehicles, and admire their angles.  Each car is placed on a large mirror, so they can show off not only their flashy outsides, but their polished undersides, too.  Here’s what I saw as I examined the details:

That’s the undercarriage showing in the reflection.  I loved the way the mirrors sometimes made it hard to tell where the car stopped and the image began…

In the huge ‘interactive’ area, there are several small biospheres set up.  Here’s what you see at first look:

We got there on a good day – most of the little creatures in there were alive.
