Ancient "Photographs"
Lens: FA 43 Camera: K-1 Photo Location: Houston, TX 
Posted By: Sailor, 08-10-2017, 11:47 AM

As we ambled through the Houston Museum of Natural Sciences last week, it occurred to me that fossilized plants and animals caught in what eventually became stone are rather like photographs, since these things record a moment in time far in the past. Here are some examples we saw.

Now, EM - you and I are not fossils (we both have blue hotrods, for example), but we may be a touch prehistoric!
