Hi, here is another yo-yo effect. How many natural letters can you find?

Oh, wonderful!

You've been refining the technique, haven't you? You'll lose your amateur status as a sportsperson if you're not careful!

I can quickly see X, O, Y, I, T U, V and Q. Would you like to swap a picture? Id like to print this one.

I see many letters and yet I see none?? If I just look at the patterns created by the yo-yo's I don't see letters. I see light patterns and wonder exactly how they were created. Now, if I put on my other glasses, stand on one foot, rub my tummy, and chant "xyzzy" (remember that one?) I start to see some letters.

Very interesting photo.

Bynx, Thank you, great eye on finding the letters.

Trading a picture would be great.

Cal, Thank you, I do remember "xyzzy". I taped small flashlights on either side of the yo-yo.

This is an inspiring image to say the least. After viewing this yesterday I decided to play around with some long exposure shots last night and although mine are no-where near as good as yours it's nice to experiment every now and then.

Thank you for posting the image and the inspiration.
