Happy Autumn

"We'll ride the spiral to the end and may just go where no one's been." (Tool, "Lateralus")

Happy Autumnal Equinox! Today marks the first day of autumn in the Northern Hemisphere. I created this image in camera - in other words, this is not a Photoshop filter. By zooming in while it was exposing, I was able to create the swirling motion. As I told my class yesterday, you do not have to duplicate reality when creating images. Mood is the most important element in any photograph or work of art, so don't be afraid to think outside the box.

Have a great day and season!
