Just a half a minute later, three seconds of intentional camera movement.

  1. Perfect colours and light for a remarkable ICM. I can well imagine this one blown up really big, a fascinating centrepiece complementing a big open space. I admire your steady hand! ☺️

  2. This image and the one you posted yesterday are different than the ones I’ve seen in the past. Intriguing through your use of color and blending and more abstract. Do you use a tripod with intentional camera shaking?

    • Thank you very much. No. I do not use a tripod. I try to make the motions as smooth as possible as I twist my body from the hips. Not being a dancer, this is difficult for me. 😉

    • Thank you very much. This is part of another illusion, as you will see. I had overlooked this quite a few times and then hit it in an archive sweep along with the other two in the series and suddenly it all just sort of fell into my lap.
