Study of Jansen’s Beach Animals

Theo Jansen has created many kind of Beach Animals. These creatures consist of walking skeletons are powered by wind, which made out of yellow electrical tubes (perhaps PVC). Most of beach animals are based on same mechanical theory, and built with different forms and sizes, some of them have wings and some have skin. Jansen wants to put these animals on the beach where they will lead their own lives. The animals were so organic and lifelike as they moved under wind power across the beach.

The motion of animal’s skeleton could be the perfect mechanism. All the skeletons are based on simple geometries, and developed leads to complex mechanism.

Sunset in La Salle

This picture was taken with HDR technique. I took the photo in normal exposure, then took another two photos, one in +1 EV and the other one in -1EV. Then I merged those three pictures in a program called Photomatix Pro with tone mapped function to maximize the dynamic range of the picture.

Just added a portrait album in the Gallery section. A friend of mine Gerri Senff’s daughter Horizon is a beautiful little girl and feels no shy in front of the lenses. She is turning 6 and on the first grad of Dalhousie elementary school.
