Week #11 Golden Ratio

Smails

 

 

This one has me a little intimidated.  Golden ratio is a formula for proportions using Fibonacci numbers.  Basically, the proportions end up looking like a form in nature similar to a nautilus shell, or these absolutely gorgeous land snail shells.  These shells are about 2-3 inches long and were found here in Sarasota.  Here is a link to the Golden Ratio Definition. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Golden_ratio

      Thanks, Susan. I was really perplexed about what subject to use for the Golden Ratio as it seems incredibly complicated. These shells were found in a field, not far from my home and I thought they were gorgeous. They are also impressive in scale, as I have never seen snail shells this big.
