Tullio,

You've really got me massaging my cerebral cortex. Where's the vanishing point?

Aloha

I agree. There is no vanishing point. The turbine blades do not fit the category of converging lines since they lie in a flat plane and are all the same distance from the camera. Also, they are not parallel to each other but rather a radial array around a central point.

Nice closeup of the jet turbine, however.

Totally my bad, Selvin and Cal. I originally thought of the vanishing point being the very center of the turbine where all lines formed by the blades would meet if the round center bit was not there. However, once you pointed out the lack of vanishing point, I do agree there isn't one, really. Selvin, can you please delete the posting so that we don't have a whole bunch of people commenting the same thing? I'd appreciate it (and my apologies for not beingcareful). Thanks.

Post deleted per Tullio's request. Normally not done but Tullio suggested this because of the potential for individuals being misled.
