This was one of my toys from my childhood! Today I found it and decided to take some shots of it spinning! I got the results I was wishing!

Today was too hot to have a walk. I'm still getting ''ready'' to the hot again. :P
24ºC is just good! hope it keeps like that!wo-wo!

????? Wow Ricky! You're posts just keep getting better and better and better (except when you do the scary bugs) ha ha.

I really think you need to write to Michael and change your name from "Only" Ricky. There's no "only" about it.

matteveryday365 Love the third shot with the top leaning slightly over. I can imagine how a shot like this would look with the top leaning even further over. It would appear to defy gravity!
matteveryday365 · 2010-04-09: 22:00
DancingDolphin Good idea and I like the results. This would be a great submission for Ted's "light, camera, action" Gallery of Light!
DancingDolphin · 2010-04-09: 22:20
djnana Perfect idea to spin it in that little groove in the floor! Great use of motion, too!
djnana · 2010-04-09: 23:00

agandia Very nice set!!
agandia · 2010-04-10: 15:11
Jarvo Wow - terrific action shots Ricky. When I saw #3 as a thumbnail, I thought that it was the same type of snail that Kozuka had posted today ;-)

blackhawk1552 ha ha ! i remember this when i was in grade school , i used to make my own top , cut a rounded branch of a tree and drive a big nail on it , then i slowly and patiently shape it..thanks a lot for sharing !
best regards ,
rob

MarieZ That's really good. According to me, #2 is the best : the colours are great and you made a good use of the depth of field.
MarieZ · 2010-04-11: 08:08
