About The new project has my mind working overtime ~~GRIN~~... In the garage packing up *stuff* and found the Totem Tennis pole, tho' a little weather worn, covered in dust and fluff, thought maybe yes... So, gave it a brush off and here it is... Macro, greyscale, levels, cloning of artifacts, unsharp mask, smart blur and small crop...

Onie -- The award and recognition are well deserved!!!! Things are spiraling out of control, concentrically speaking, as we all walk around hunting for circles, rings, and spirals. Funny how these monthly projects cause us to exhibit obsessive photography behavior (OPB).

hi and thanks for explaining...the only thing i can recall that comes close to what you describe is what is called "tether ball" here in the US...there is a taller pole and rope is attached to a ball close in size to a volleyball...best played by 2,tho' one can play alone...once hit,it swings toward other person who may or may not be able to hit it to return toward other person as it spirals around the pole...only hands are used...perhaps our game is a version based on yours which may be older in origin...
Hope your Easter was delightful,too!
regards,gayle

LOL! Yes... but (almost) everything is concentrical if we look around! (No pun intended...since not necessarily circular concentricity!) Eeeeks... I am "doomed" to a Life of concentric vision! ROFLOL!

Cheers my Friend! Your image is beter than just "OK"... :)

Pure luck and that is honest... It just happened to be there in the garage while packing... Thought ok, shared/common centre...:))) So, out with the camera... Mind you, my eyes see nothing else at the moment... I'm in desperate need a diversional therapist of that I'm sure ~~GRIN~~...

Thanks kind Sir, always appreciated...~~GRIN~~...

Thanks kindly Gayle...:))) 'tis indeed a brand newie... LOL...

This is a more a kids toy, but whole family can have fun (had to say that because I do)... You may know it as another name because there are several different versions...

Consists of a pole of approx 6 ft in height, on a stand, the top end you see here... The spiral has a strong string attached with the other end attached to a tennis ball...

Two short handled bats/paddles, similar in size to raquet ball raquet... Can be played by one or two players... You stand opposite each other and hit the ball... It is free wheeling, in that the string can run around the spiral either way depending whether forward or backhand...

It is actually great exercise, good for the reflexes and lots of laughs...:)))

Thanks for the thumbs up...:))) and hope you and yours also had a lovely Easter...:)))

Congrats for a well deserved BIP in the current project and nice to see it is a new image shot for the project! ;>

i was an avid tennis player back in the day,but i have not a clue as to what this object is...LOL...
very well seen and executed...like the perspective,dof and think it is the perfect choice for B/W so that the focus is on the forms and tonal values...
Happy Easter and best regards,gayle

Take care
