The Tuesday Inspiration: Nature knows best

Unlike many man-made designs, nature always seems to know that today??s theme is the best way forward and I thought this snail??s shell would illustrate this concept effectively. Based on the Fibonacci sequence it??s an example of nature at its most aesthetically pleasing, although of course the former occupant of this particular shell would sadly never been able to appreciate the beauty of his/her home from the inside!

Thanks to Vivienne [] for setting today??s theme. Last Tuesday??s theme was ??closeness??. The other interpretations of this week??s theme can be found here [].

The ??Tuesday Inspiration? began in 2009 when Stefan [] and I started setting each other a photographic challenge on a? Tuesday. Very soon afterwards, we decided to open this up to other PB members, followed by the idea that we should not reveal what the subject is, so that other members could compare how different members view a single theme. The Tuesday Inspiration is not a contest or a challenge, but a group of people all agreeing to post their interpretation of a single theme on Tuesdays. Each week, one of the contributors sets the theme. There are now over 40 members contributing to the TI. We have only two ??rules?: don??t include the subject in the TI title or tags and please comply with standard PB guidelines on courtesy, etc. If you would like to take part, please send me a message via this blog.

      Good capture, but I think the Fibonacci sequence is based on the shell, not the other way around :P
