Toy: Kaleidoscope

Kaleidoscope pattern. (Click picture for larger view) Posted by Picasa

"Our days are a kaleidoscope. Every instant a change takes place in the contents. New harmonies, new contrasts, new combinations of every sort. Nothing ever happens twice alike. The most familiar people stand each moment in some new relation to each other, to their work, to surrounding objects. The most tranquil house, with the most serene inhabitants, living upon the utmost regularity of system, is yet exemplifying infinite diversities." ~ Henry Ward Beecher (1813-1887)
The kaleidoscope pattern was photographed through the keyhole shaped eyepiece shown below. (click on "read more") Submission is for MacroDay topic "toy".
