This is my image for WIND.  This was taken at the abandoned power plant in Dixmoor, Illinois. 

As soon as I saw the word "wind",  I knew I wanted to go with the "winding a clock" rather than the "wind through the trees" definition.  When I saw the "Relax & Unwind" graffiti, I knew I'd found my perfect image for wind.

And now, happily, I can share some of my other images from the Dixmoor power plant.  Yay!

  1. +Laura Ockel  It is very strong images for "wind" title. It reminds me of the future of America with Trump.:-)))

    I want to share a tip of physics. Wind is a directional movement of particles. Radiometer is a tool to visualize the WIND of light. 30 years ago, the concept blew my mind.

    Here is a link to how Radiometer works.

    Good luck with your photos.

  2. I never actually knew what a Radiometer did +Leo Lee.  I've seen them running on solar power, but I wasn't aware of the why and how.  Thanks for sharing! 

    I heard people are talking about moving to Canada if Trump is elected, and others are going to move if Hillary is elected.  I tell you, I've been saying I'll move to Canada if Hillary Clinton becomes president since I was 17 years old!  I will turn 40 this year.  I have held this conviction throughout my adult life.  And now, it looks like I may have to do it.

    I've talked to Canadians.  Canada seems like a fine place, full of wonderful people.  And I've already incorporated some "eh"s into my speech, so it's all good 🙂

  3. +Laura Ockel I am happy to hear that you like the idea of photon wind.

    I did not know about lots of Hillary history because I came to America 15 years ago. If you don't mind, can I ask, why don't you like her? I thought people are separated by party, but not by candidate personality. 8 years ago, I felt a honest and smart person should be good for the president, but in reality Obama can't do himself alone. So, Bernie will do the same thing. We need someone smart and someone connected to reality.

    I know it is not smart to show the color of political view on Google plus.

  4. Happy to answer +Leo Lee.  When Bill Clinton was president, Hillary was very involved in national affairs.  She pushed for public healthcare, often referred to as "Hillarycare".  To me, this was as absurd as having a neurosurgeon's spouse assisting with your brain surgery.  The office should be concentrating on President Clinton's policies, not the whims of some random female.  Now I understand that the Clintons were a team and Bill chose Hillary as a life partner because she was intelligent and capable.  However, back when I was 17, I may have assumed every marriage was as arbitrary as my parents', who each were married 3 times and only married each other because of me. 

    There was a common bumper sticker that read:
    I didn't vote for President Clinton, or her husband either.
    She wielded an offensive amount of influence.

    I don't agree with any instance where a politician's only claim to fame is a familial relationship with another politician, but there are a lot of Kennedys and Bushs to prove my opinion is not the popular one.  And here in the state where I live, politician Mel Carnahan died 3 weeks before his election to senate, still won the vote posthumously, and his wife served in his place as our senator, much to my displeasure. 

  5. +Laura Ockel There are two main aspects of your opinion about American politics. Firstly, you don't like the first family involvement. I know we elect one person, but at the end the family rules the whole policies. Lastly, you don't favor of female character in our leadership.

    There is no way to separate family involvement during or even after presidency. In South Korea, most families of all presidents end up in jail. :-)))

    Women can do as much as men can do. Many countries all over the world have female leaders in fact.

    I would give the nuke trigger to a smart person rather than the crazy one, even though the smart one has personal issues. It is much safer. This is just my opinion. :-)))

  6. I imagine there are some excellent female leaders in global politics +Leo Lee​ but the female presidential or vice-presidential candidates thus far have all been a bit odd, and an unfortunate representation of the gender.

  7. I hope you find a good candidate and the person gets elected. :-))) I am happy with anyone, except the crazy one.

    Thank you for sharing your thought and experience.

  8. Damn that's a marvelous shot sis. I want you to know that I've convinced +anthony price​ to throw his hat in the ring for the next president of the United States. Brother Tony is campaigning for equal rights for goats. I heard that +Larry Hartshorn​ was doing the photo shoot for his campaign.
