The Windmills of Your Mind by catch---22 The Windmills of Your Mind by catch---22
Round, like a circle in a spiral
Like a wheel within a wheel.
Never ending or beginning,
On an ever spinning wheel
Like a snowball down a mountain
Or a carnaval balloon
Like a carousell that's turning
Running rings around the moon.

Like a clock whose hands are sweeping
Past the minutes on it's face
And the world is like an apple
Whirling silently in space
Like the circles that you find
In the windmills of your mind...

How could I not collect this shot! Not vintage Aeromotors but still nice work with the B&W tones and the capture of motion on the prarie.

Nice composition and angle on this one Dennis,
I always have liked shots like this where you are facing a long road, may it be b/w or colour,
it gives me the same feel of a journey ahead, and wonder of whats at the end of it..:confused:
I can see where the song came from, the windmills of your mind......
not one of my favourites, but love stings voice anyways. :love:

i just love the wide open space! We dont have anything around here that looks even close to this. i know im supposed to be looking at the windmills...but i cant stop staring at the emptiness of it all here. :)
Love it Dennis.

even to me (a flat lander) this is a pretty different landscape. I do love the big skies of the prairie.

thank you very much Linda :)
