Safety Net

I’m sorry for the late post everyone.  I fell asleep having not actually published a post.  So here’s one for yesterday, and do expect another one later on today to make it up to you.

This is a safety net installed on a ship so that one does not fall off the side inadvertently.  While there is a side railing for the purpose mentioned, the net is there so that smaller people do not fall through the gaps beneath the railing.  It would be a rather unfortunate event if such a thing happened to a child while on a cruise.

I took this photograph because I thought the pattern was intriguing.  It’s more how the irregular diamond shapes mesh together as a tesselation than anything else about it.  I’m sure that the net was not designed that way and somehow it has settled into its final form. Maybe it’s from all the people grabbing onto the netting and moving the knots around.  Or maybe the wind.  Either way, I found it quite fascinating.
