This is a bit mind-bending Shawn, and very cool. You're right, it might not be a traditional data visualization, but it's worth seeing. Thanks for posting it here.
Ellie, glad you liked it! Sometimes, sitting at a computer all day I get a little too much into my own head. But if nothing else it was a nice photo. (If I could only remember where I got it so I could credit the photographer. Hmmmm, I'll have to work on that.)

This is a wonderful picture, Shawn - it's one of those pictures that you look at. Then you look at it again. Then something clicks and you can't stop looking. It's such a familiar thing we see in real life, but as a snapshot it's really unusual.
THanks for sharing.
