The last photo, the beautiful impossible pose, reminds me of an art history class I took at Berkeley. The focus was sculpture, and the professor always had us try to strike the pose of the sculpture. It really helped to see where the tension that held your eye came from.

That's a good idea, about striking the pose. It's amazing how different that statue looked just because I just took a step to my left.
