You just squeaked by me this week Mick, I almost posted mine before you. Oh well . . . age before beauty they say. Just kidding!

Good work here. The topic may be immovable but this piece has lots of movement and texture. The black and white color scheme keeps it simple and harmonious.

There's no doubt about it, you're the beautiful one and I'm the old one! :D

As for the movement of this collage of gears, it's the fixed gear in the center that is immovable. As a metaphor, it also stands for a black hole that's an immovable force drawing everything in it's path to it. Now, where in the world did I put that slide rule thingy!
