Pinwheel Round-a-bout

Newer Older

There are many, maybe too many, round-a-bouts in Spain. To help tell them apart, instead of putting up street signs, they put stuff in the middle to distract you , and to obstruct your view of oncoming traffic. (It's supposed to make you slow down; a traffic-calming device, if you will.)
The sound comes from a very interesting study by:

    I post video with some trepidation, as most of the photographers that I most wish to emulate seem to feel strongly against having videos here on Flickr. While I do feel like a bit of a traitor, and I understand the concern that Flickr may become muddied up, much like youtube and the like, I still feel there are some "long photographs" that have enough merit to be placed here. However, the resolution of the processed final product seems a bit low, and the limit of 90 seconds seems plenty long, maybe too long.
    Any ideas?

    Mmm, not sure this may slow me down. Maybe a little bit too much distracting to me, yet, it's nice looking, and not visually disturbing as many "roundabout art" one can see everywhere.
    Thanks for this vid.
    Regards, Voyagepedia
