[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
When I was finished with this abstraction, I couldn't figure out for quite some time what it represented in terms of approximation to an idea.
The image looked appealing but why?
Then one day much much later while going one more time through T.S.Eliot's the FOUR QUARTETS, I suddenly had a feeling this image to some extent serves as a visual to the following lines from the "Burnt Norton":

At the still point of the turning world. Neither flesh nor fleshless;
Neither from nor towards; at the still point, there the dance is,
But neither arrest nor movement.

May you be the best judge!

Hey Ram,
Great abstract! It has a kind of 3D effect... it looks like you could enter into the swirl.
Thanks for sharing!
Best regards,
Angela

Hi Ram!
I'm glad that you've decided to post this one :)
The colors are very appealing, and this graphical, abstract effect leads us into the picture!
It's great!
Congratulations.
Luci
