For whatever reason, there's no EXIF data, but it's a "Straight" shot taken at around 1/8th second

A strange vision but an extraordinary visual effect ... sometimes things happen like this that leave us fans ... Finally a machine is a machine ... and wrong many times in our favor ... I remember that I have a photograph of a long, long time ... analog time ... An image in B / N that was wonderful. I remember I try to remember as he had done ... when I saw on paper. Could not remember more than ever and I never tried to find out ... A gift of chance for sure! A hug, Adela

Looks lethal .
Re your book and cover comment of a few days ago,the other day I was wearing an Emo tee-shirt with a dead crow on it . Today I have a black one with the word Fender on it.
Q: What does that make me?
A: Someone who wears his son's cast off clothes :)

@grouser: If you can wear your son's cast off t-shirts, I think the right adjective would be...."Thin"!

PRASHANT from Mumbai, India

Denny Jump Photo from Easton, PA, United States

Back in the days just after dinosaurs vanished from the earth, a band I played drumns for (for a very short time) would play this song...the lead guitarist and vocalist (?) LOVED that song.....Personally, I like this image one hell of a lot better! The spin motion/stop face/color-kaleidescopic-laughing and smiles are all completely eye catching. The image moves but the eye takes a few stops along the way. This is magnificent, Chris!!
