To take the bike theme to the extreme, the only lighting for this shot was a bright strobe light off the front of my bike. I used the strobe to paint light onto the moving wheel, resulting in the extra spokes. I spun the wheel at many different speeds and this was the closest I could get to the speed of the strobe, to decrease the blur.

The spokes give it a really nice touch, if only the center piece was in focus.

The pattern of the lines creates movement within the photograph.
