Kaleido-kid

Time to move away from the abstracts for a bit. This image was taken at the Explora Science Center and Children's Museum in Albuquerque, NM. My son is at one end of a tube that was open at both ends. Inside there are 4 mirrors placed in a diamond shape. When someone looks down the end of the tube at someone else, the effect is that of a kaleidoscope. Anyway, I thought it was great fun. I have planned on building something like this for myself as I think you could get some neat images with it. But where would I put it?

Yesterday's image is from the Reston Town Center (taken before the confrontation with the security guard). It is of a drain covered in snow and surrounded by a layer of ice. To me the drain cover looks Oriental, hence the name.

(Where was this taken?)
