In a burst of curiosity, I decided to take pictures of a ceiling fan in our master bedroom. I was curious to see if the camera was able to capture the spinning blades and the shades of light created by the motion of the blades.
To add to the experiment, I took shots during the day and during the evening to see its effects. It was interesting and fun to do. Photography has no rules and just about everything is fair game.
Below are the results of my out-of-the-moment photographic impulse. Here we go.

This is the same ceiling fan, but shot during the evening. To me it looks like an eye looking directly at me, with the black pupil in the middle. All around the light shell, its jet black. Photo by ©Omar Upegui R.
