show us some shots incorporating movement as the main subject. Human, animal, vegetable or mineral. I'll start the ball rolling:

I strapped my GRD3 to the rear passenger door handle of my Land Rover Discovery, set for an 8 sec exposure then burned a donut in the church car park at the great break neck speed of 1mph.

you should be able to figure it out...
Very cool Pete! For how many of the 8 seconds was your likeness in the mirror?

I think my best movement based shots were a series I did at a bike race last summer - simple panning shots at about 1/15. I keep coming back to this one, but there are a couple other keepers as well. not a theme I often think of, but conditions sort of forced my hand that evening.

Good subject and it makes me realize that I don't do too many pictures with movement. Both you two, have shown two really good photos showing movement. I'm laughing at the "donuts" in the church parking lot, Pete.:biggrin:

Here are three from me - 1st one zoomed in with my former LX5 of our dog racing back to us with his beloved frisbee. The second another frisbee related shot - though it's out of the frame...and the third is pretty straightforward - light, shadow, lines and hubbub under the RR bridge. Later two taken with the Fuji X100.

Hey Ray. I remember these, lovely stuff and the shot reminds me of a French cartoon of some kind (in a good way, but cannot put my finger on it) I was in the mirror the whole time trying to keep still, you can see I am ghosted in the mirror. I came 2nd in our club comp with a similar shot.

Cheers

They fit perfectly, Pavel.
Absolutely, Stratokaster. I love that first shot and remember when you first put it up with some disclaimer about it being your first attempt at street photography. A shot that I think any veteran would have been proud to have taken!

In a similar vein, here another of mine that isn't the quality of that shot, but is also very much an attempt to go for the same type of movement swirling around a relatively static main focal point in similar pedestrian environs.:
