Spinning Wheel Got To Go Round

What goes up must come down
spinning wheel got to go round
Talking about your troubles it's a crying sin
Ride a painted pony
Let the spinning wheel spin
- Blood, Sweat and Tears

Ironic in a sense "Blood, Sweat and Tears" sung the song but it was the pioneers who actually did put their blood, sweat and tears into the spinning wheel.

Image wise this is an HDR capture tone mapped with photomatix (4 shots). The bright light coming into the window combined with the very dark interior was an excellent opportunity to use this techique. Ideally one or two pictures more to capture exterior detail would have been good, but I was hand-holding the camera (with some help from the furniture). I wasn't able to keep it steady enough for a even slower shuttter speed. BW conversion done in Lr2.
