“We have found a strange footprint on the shores of the unknown. We have devised profound theories, one after another, to account for its origins. At last, we have succeeded in reconstructing the creature that made the footprint. And lo! It is our own.”
Arthur Stanley Eddington
I came across a scene so random and playful that it couldn’t help but stimulate the imagination; and thankfully I had my camera with me to capture it for posterity.
In this image, the child in me sees a strange traveller arriving on our shores for the first time – and what wonders await him? A brave new world of science and discovery, of quantum possibilities and cosmic-rays… or maybe it’s just an inflatable tiger 😉
