Selfie

August 10, 2018  •  8 Comments

The Natural History Museum in Paris had a special exhibit with a skeleton of Tyrannosaurus Rex that they were making a big deal about. The complete skeleton was assembled in a running posture in a dark, narrow room, with a "selfie" skull projected on the floor where people were supposed to stand or kneel to take selfies with T-Rex.

 

View in front of the "selfie" spot.

 

 

 

The room was so narrow that it was difficult to get a side view of T-Rex even doing a panorama with a 17mm super-wide angle lens.

 

 

The room was was joined by two corridors on the tail end of T-Rex. This shot shows how narrow the room is.

 

On the way out from T-Rex, they had games the kids were playing. In this one, dinosaurs imitated whatever motion a person in the circle did. 

 

In this display, the kid on the bike is chasing T-Rex on the screen in front of the bike, while being chased by T-Rex on the screen behind the bike.

That is a magnificent specimen, Tim. The selfie pad is a nice touch the museum added.

Thanks, Michelle. There were a lot of kid friendly things everywhere we went in Paris. That was really nice to see. We are all doing well.
