Moire in Architecture, paper, coffee
In reply to SigmaChrome, May 19, 2012

Two versions of the same shot, second one 1/2 size. Moire everywhere, along with the drama. This is the roof of the center atrium of the Smithsonian museum of American Art and National Portrait Gallery, off the mall near 7th St NW, Washington DC. It's a heavy rigid structure that flows like a sail over the atrium. Reminds me of the atrium roof of the British Museum, London. Interesting to see that downsizing trades one arrangement of moire for another.

There is a nice (but expensive) snack bar there with tables in the atrium. Second image is looking into the cavernous recesses of a wadded-up paper napkin.

Later, my wife and I went to Starbucks, near home. Third shot is that nice starbucks coffee (my first macro coffee bubbles shot, and probably not my last).
Overall we had a very nice day out and about. It was perfect weather too.
