Moving Circles

A friend sent this to me in an email. This is just a picture, and it isn't animated. Click to enlarge and see what happens.

The movement is actually an optical illusion. I think it's really cool.

Hello Dabrah. Nice to meet you. Thanks for commenting on my blog. Once I get my eyes uncrossed from looking at this thing, I'll check out some of your otherl postings (lol).

That's neat!
As soon as I transfer my gaze from one circle to the next, it stops turning, and the one I just looked at starts turning.
I know there's a very scientific explanation for this, but I just can't think what it is at the moment!

Bit dizzy now but fun. If you focus on one, all stop spinning. Difficult to keep focussing on one though.

As if I wasn't already a dizzy dame! hahaha

Hey, I wanted to tell you I read an article in one of the latest People magazines about the man who start freerice.com. It was interesting, and wow they really do donate a LOT of rice. I still play when I think about it.

I loved your "slapstick" moment! :)

Ah... you asked about the glove. Well, it was early in the morning and I was in my jammies and house coat and slippers, lots of snow on the ground... she started chewing on the glove so I made a dive for it and landed in a big snowbank, grabbed the glove, but she thought it was all part of the game and jumped on me, pushing me further into the snow... I was floundering about, lost a slipper, my jammies were soaking and cold, finally got up with difficulty, beating a funcrazed puppy off with one hand and trying to clutch the glove with the other. I hope the neighbours weren't watching, they would have had a good chuckle at the sight of me stuck in the snowdrift!

Good Afternoon Dabrah,
I'm back online and trying to catch up with everyone. Boy, I am seeing circles now. LOL. That is so cool. Am I spinning as well? LOL. I read your post about maybe getting some Snow for Easter. I hope you don't. We had some warm temperatures here on Tuesday and then we got alot of rain and it has turned a bit chilly again. I think it is suppose to be mild and dry here for Easter. Take care my friend and have a great morning. May God Bless You and Yours.

Love & Hugs,
Karen H.
