Motion

In the Motion Assignment post, I mentioned how things which move are all around us.  Sometimes they show up right in your own town.

The Syracuse Nationals gave me another opportunity to look for things in motion.  Not as easy as you might think as most of the cars are on display and motionless.  Unless you get there in time to see a few of the late comers showing up.

Cruising the vendor tables, I came upon these battery operated toys moving and spinning about.
