Spin!

Something a bit different here. For those of you wondering, this was not done in Photoshop. The effect is created by using a slow shutter speed and then zooming the lens and rotating the camera at the same time. It sounds complicated but it’s not really that difficult. The hardest part is keeping the camera centered so the swirl is in the middle. Of course there are no rules that say the swirl has to be in the middle and you can get some interesting patterns either way.

This image was taken in the welcome center at the Olympic Sculpture Park in Seattle. An entire wall was a mural of tiny people (see closeup below). I think the mural was done by Geoff McFetridge but I neglected to verify this.
