Like a circle in a spiral
Like a wheel within a wheel
Never ending or beginning
On an ever-spinning reel
As the images unwind
Like the circles that you find
In the windmills of your mind ...........
Noel Harrison


Just a bit of fun with some shadows from the sails of a windmill for Saturday Shadows.

The exif info is long since gone but immaterial really considering it's been through the wringer.

A beauty Dave - spot on for Saturday shadows - I like the blur.
Not one that I can look at for long though - has quite a memorising effect SmileSmile

I have enjoyed the Thomas Crown Affair and in particular that song more times than I can recall........I'll be humming it all day now (not singing........would be unfair to the neighbours).
One of those fascinating images that I can look at and wonder how it was achieved, Dave: excellent array of shapes, patterns, light and shade.

I agree. Although Noel Harrison originally sang it I think it was performed by Sting in the Thomas Crown Affair.

Clever manipulation and effective mono with spirals and shadows
accompanied by the song!
To hang with the song, I'll settle for Pierce Brosnan
and I've no doubt there will be a few Steve McQueen fans out there!
see what you've started Dave!!!

I'm glad you added the explanation, I would never have worked this out without it. I'm not sure that I have even now...
I love it, my only suggestion would be a square crop, getting rid of a strip at the bottom and a teensy bit at the top. But that's just how I see abstracts.
I also love the Exif data.
