Posted for Thursday Challenge. This week's challenge is "attractive." The attractive artwork is a sculpture, entitled “Ship of Pearl,” which resembles a crosscut view of a chambered nautilus, its shell spinning outward. Designed by noted artist Donald Lipski, it borrows its title from the opening line of a poem by Oliver Wendell Holmes celebrating the nautilus as a symbol of constant change and spiritual growth. It is backlit making for a spectacular night time shot. To find more attractive photos click here for Thursday Challenge.
