I thought the London Eye (http://tinyurl.com/9gerk)
was both an engineering marvel as well as an architectural monstrosity. I tried to capture with this picture the combination of the two. It is so different from the surrounding buildings and so big and bright, it dominates its area on the Thames. I thought it was neat that the spokes are crisp near the center and blur out towards the edges as the effective velocity increases.
