Goldfish spiral, originally uploaded by Nathan deGargoyle.

Spiraling goldfish made using the Droste effect – a specific kind of recursive picture that shows a smaller version of itself in a place where a similar picture would realistically be expected to appear. In theory could this go on forever; practically, it continues only as long as the resolution of the picture allows. (Says Wikipedia.)

Check out more of this type of work in this Flickr pool.

Enjoy today’s photo! If you like the photo, please drop a comment to the original photographer at Flickr.
