For me, this pattern gave me a strong sense of pareidolia. The wear pattern in this luggage carousel at DFW Airport reminded me of the figure in Edvard Munch’s Skrik (The Scream). Add the generic angst from that to the existential despair of being stuck behind the metal of a luggage carousel, forever, and that’s the photo. At least for me. Your mileage may vary.

Tehcnical photography stuff: Panasonic GF2 camera, Navitar 50mm f/0.95 (I don’t think I’m going to get tired of writing that spec), probably around ISO 400 and f/2.8 or so.

Mirage

I was driving home on SR 674 east of Wimauma when I noticed this nice mirage. It’s just a simple refraction of light through hot air over the asphalt. I remember being fascinated by this mirage as a child, where no matter how often we approached the apparent “water” on the road, it always receded before us.
