Commemorative silver coin for the 125th anniversary (1864-1989) of Banca Serfin, a Mexican national bank I used to head (1984-1989).
I used talcum powder with no other intention than to create a leading line into the swirling coin.
Swirled the coin on a glass top dinning table. Used one of my long coats over a dining room chair as backdrop.

Fabulous Capture! I love the talcum powder leading line...very clever. Me thinks...You might be a "closet" macro photographer (wink).

Thank you for your kind comments. It was fun and a much needed distraction at the time.
"Closet" macro photographer? Not really. I just try to remain versatile; getting the job done no matter what the subject or light conditions.

Thanks. One of those rare days when inspiration comes easy. The color is the reflection from a green plant at the center (right hand side) of the table.
