My best friend this past weekend! Well, not really but you get the idea. This old electric fan spent decades in my grandparents' cellar, and when the time finally came to sell the house I rescued it from the trash heap. I love the way it looks, but I confess this photograph is a lie. I have no idea if the fan works, and in fact I'm scared to even plug it in and try it out. I set the camera for a long exposure and gave the blades a spin with my fingers. It took a few tries to get the timing just right, but here you go.
