you spin my head right round, right round

I was just about to delete this photo, thinking it was rubbish, when I opened it up. I love it!

This is what you get when you combine a slow shutter speed and the sidewalk. I was using my point-and-shoot camera. It was early evening but my flash was turned off so I noticed that the shutter was staying open longer than usual. I thought it would be fun to click the shutter and then swirl my camera around in the air.
