Et l'on reprend les circonvolutions, urbis et orbis, pour ne jamais épuiser les possibilités de pertes et retrouvailles.
Et l'on s'étonne d'entendre parfois d'autres que soi se dire que l'on a fait le tour.
Et faire le tour, qu'est-ce, si ce n'est poursuivre une trajectoire en boucle, avec pour perspective de redécouvrir toujours et tous les jours ces chemins, ces rues, ces maisons, cette carte mentale que la ville s'amuse à modifier en permanence.
L'on y retourne ?

"une trajectoire en boucle"
brice, have you been in saigon too long ?? are you seeking a COLLISION in your life ?
I love the way the title is phrased: Planetary Collision at Vega (CONCEPT)

btw I posted the EMBRAYAGE photo on word irreverence (and gave you credit in the LIGHT + MOTION thread)

Could you explain some of the technical process involved in making that photo ? Have you digitally edited, constructing the endless pattern ?? did you initially photograph something lying on the street?

have a good day, IRA in nyc
is there some way I can fuse links directly with text?

Dear Ira,
This endless pattern was taken rather bluntly from this tilted floor I've seen during "Journee du patrimoine" - a French party-day for visiting French (still owned)heritage throughout the world. Here : Saigon's French consulate, a large colonial villa, in the middle of a park located in the city center. Quite a luxurious habitat in such a crowded city... Hence the quietness of the picture.

Brice, I don't understand.
Do you mean TILTED or TILED ???

Have you photographed flat tiles in a way that produces a TROMPE L'OEIL ? In other words --> an illusional 3-dimensional effect ?

(I always do love your photos from ground level !!! Obviously, I was a worm in a previous life ^^)

Oups. I meant "tiled", but my fingers decided otherwise...
An old tiled floor with this geometric pattern that confuse the eye. Indeed, perfect for a trompe l'oeil !
