    Your photo’s a perfect illustration for a section in a book I was reading yesterday. Once upon a time (like, 24 hours ago) I would have seen a couple of straight lines and a curve reflecting in the water. This morning, I’m remembering this quotation from the book: “The circle has a curve to it, that’s true. But every tiny little piece of it can be well approximated by a perfectly straight line…”

    I do like the image, a lot. Art and science, in one nice photo. (The book’s one that Steve S. mentioned recently: How Not to Be Wrong: The Power of Mathematical Thinking, by Jordan Ellenberg.)

    • It s true about the infinitesimal number of straight lines but that could also be said about the number of minute arcs I think. Of course, I am not a mathematician so my statement may be wrong. 🙂

  2. Shades of Harry Callahan. Now that’s minimal minimalism.

    You draw on the water, that’s what! I love this exercise in spareness, Steve.
