Exactly what the title says - the pit and the pendulum in the entry of the Griffith Park Observatory. The Pendulum swings, the earth rotates... it's quite fascinating!

The pit itself is a perfect circle, and the pendulum a sphere. The wide angle and perspective may distort these shapes a bit. I don't expect this to have much of a DPC wow factor....

But I had a blast going there with Dale and Mae - thanks, guys!

im surprised i only gave this a six...i'm pretty sure it's because i think i saw another, not as appealing, shot from the same location first when i was voting. totally unfair, i should have rated this higher, i love the perspective, the slight distortion and the b&w treatment.

I thought this would get a ribbon -- 8 from me (but you seem to get a lot of 8s from me. :)

Anyway, I thought this shot should have a bluebird. :)

Love this shot, Deb. It really captures the fascination people have with the pendulum. The shot was definitely worth the walk up that hill to the observatory!

Fabulous image!!

I really do love it.

However, if I saw this image outside of the challenge and were asked to describe it, "Circle" would not be among my words.

I'm not voting, though... so maybe the rest will disagree.
I really do love this image.
