    This contest should be interesting with many different interpretation of the theme. Please vote for the picture that best represents our theme this week, which is on something that goes around and around.

    Looks to me like you slightly changed contest subject - it was "Going 'Round In Circles"

    Tough choices again! I think I'm going with Janus'. Something about the simplicity of the patterns and colors appeals to me. I like Andre's spider web a lot too, but it just felt a bit unfocused (I'm not really sure how one can focus on a spider web, so can hardly blame him for the difficulty there, but it's enough to make it a close second rather than first place for me).

    Glondor, has my admiration. Garden hoses become mighty Sea Serpents in my hands, a battle which I often loose. Plus he gets bonus points for buying a hose that brings out the subtle undertones of his Berber carpet.

    I voted for Borek's cut log with the visible tree rings, which convey the passage of time.

    Andre's spider web was a close 2nd in my decision.

    I voted for Glondor because I want to hear everyone who loses complain about getting hosed.

    Wow! Not one vote for my DVD? Would it help if I told you the DVD is the remake of "3:10 to Yuma" starring Russel Crowe? No? OK....

    I still haven't been able to decide yet - too many neat interpretations of the theme.

    Thanks for the votes folks. This was part of a series I did at work one day several years ago.I photographed everything spirally, loopy and wound I could find. Here is a link to the rest if you are interested. The yellow airline was almost my choice for the contest. Nothing special, just bored at work.

    Wow, definitely some good shots. I was torn between Janus and Borek, but Janus pulled ahead in the end for the literal depiction of 'going round'. Great shot though Borek.

    I agree, incidentely the Dutch word for spider is "spin".

    We should have a poll. Who throws more tidbits of trivial knowledge at the end of their posts. Andre or Ivan Seeking. I'm not complaining, I love them, the tidbits not the men.

    I'll have to go with Borek and force someone to break a 4-way tie for first. His take on the contest was pretty original, and since I burn wood for heat, I take the carbon cycle pretty seriously.
