Variations On A Theme

The Arc theme.

I hadn't noticed this, but shaun's keen eye picked out similarities in the first two photos shown below that I posted recently on Google+. Oddly, my recent one, at the bottom, kept to the theme. I didn't do it purposely. Arcs on the brain.

Below is a photo of our chimney flue liner that we had installed last week. It reminds me of a scorpion tail. ... The house that swallowed the scorpion.

This is a photo of the space shuttle Atlantis' descent last week. From NASA:
"This unprecedented view of the space shuttle Atlantis, appearing like a bean sprout against clouds and city lights, on its way home, was photographed by the Expedition 28 crew of the International Space Station. Airglow over Earth can be seen in the background."

And here's a little critter I saw on the deck this morning. I don't know what he is. I've been calling him a tiger bug for the bold orange stripes on his back.

I love how shapes in nature repeat.
