A swing of, well, ummm....yeah.

This is one of my favorites. Is that your reflection in the pendulum? (probably a different word for that thing) What is happening in there, with the repetition of the circles from above great. Your eye first is drawn to the large area on the left, but then you get the "oh, look in there" on the pendulum. Love moments like that in any work.

I'm glad you liked it. I originally played around a lot with cropping out everything but the pendulum, because the pendulum thingy (the pendulum ball?? that somehow doesn't sound right...) actually contains the rest of the picture in it. (And yes that's me in there, too.) But to focus on the ball (again, wrong) actually loses the "echo" effect of it. So....your comments vindicate my decision, and I'm glad for them. Thanks so much.
