We know you love our photo galleries but if you are in need for more visual inspiration, check out this National Geographic Photography page. For over 10 months, they have been featuring photo galleries that make great photo stories on people, places and nature from all over the world.
For a touch-point with design, we recommend you start browsing the "Design by Nature" gallery with lots of examples on biomimetics, a young science of adapting designs from nature to solve modern problems, as demonstrated by the boxfish project.
"The boxfish's surprisingly streamlined form inspired Mercedes-Benz's bionic concept car. Flowing vapors during wind-tunnel tests in a Stuttgart facility show off the car's aerodynamics, which helps boost its gas mileage to as high as 70 miles per gallon." (photo by Robert Clark)
If this photography is your kind of game, then you might want to submit your top shot for the 2nd Annual National Geographic Photography Contest (before October 31).
