Friday Photo Fun - Something Swinging

Something Swinging
by Rachel Hoyt



This item has a much longer history than many know.
Many probably buy them solely for a pretty show,
Yet once upon a time they were used for protection,
To send evil spirits running the other direction.

Friday Photo Fun is when I share a randomly captured moment,
or perhaps a photo experiment with more purposeful intent,
then pair it with a rhyming riddle to exercise your mind
and teach you more weird facts to which you once were blind.

After the answer is guessed, I will post a second, non-abstract photo...
and just in case you wanted to know,
the first is not a photoshopped version of the second -
they're shot using different techniques that to me beckon.


Bryan guessed the answer quite quickly this week -
wind chimes were the item of which I speak.

  1. Even though it looks more like water, it can't be because water runs not swings! I'm guessing a dream catcher!

    1. No, but you're very close. :) I think this item is less well known for warding off evil...
