Dem Bones   Leave a comment

“Biomimetics”- the mimicking of biological structures in engineered materials- has been trendy for at least two decades. A recent trip to the beach yielded a bunch of fish bones, which I thought would be interesting to photograph. The bones have a very detailed structure which balances strength and weight. Here’s the first few images, taken using only the 100mm Luminar: the first one is a vertebrae, and reminds me of a “Star Wars” spaceship. The second is unknown, but has a very detailed inner structure.
