Shiny - Thematic Photography

You would think a crab is an unlikely animal to qualify for Carmi's theme of shiny. However take a look at this.

Crab Nebula
By Hubble Space Telescope - NASA

Hubble may have given us a chance to span the heavens but back on Earth it's just a bridge that spans a river which qualifies as shiny.
Infinity Bridge - Stockton-on-Tees.
This shot and another view which would also fit the 'shiny' theme appeared back in January 2011 under  curves

For other shiny reflections go to Thematic-photographic-215

Love the nebula. Those shots are so pretty.

Oh Hubble. It's given us a look into space, and should help us all understand just how small and precious and rare our little dirt ball is.

Janet said...

both gorgeous shots :-) Love the arch of the bridge!

Not only is the Crab Nebula beautiful, but what a cool name!

That nebula is great! So is Stockton-on-Tees Bridge! They do know how to build bridges up in the NE!

Great idea to use the Hubble shot!

The nebula is great, but that bridge is awesome.

That bridge is pure art. I love its human scale: you can walk right up to it, touch it, experience it slowly. There's a pedestrian bridge not far from my house that has an interesting truss-like span: you've inspired me to take a walk there this weekend. Thanks!
