Long Exposure 
Slightly late, but this weeks photo challenge was difficult. I ended up with this one of my fellow swans just before 2nd act. I like the busyness in the photo.

Charles Altamont Doyle (English, 1832 – 1893)
Saint Giles: Residual ghosts evoked by bells at the cathedral in Edinburgh
The father of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Charles Doyle was plagued by depression and alcoholism throughout his life. He was committed to a mental asylum in 1881. He was miserable and longed for his freedom. He planned a violent escape but was re-captured. Then Doyle created intricate paintings of fairies to try to prove his sanity.
Nothing worked, and he died in the asylum in 1893. Are these paintings the work of an insane man?
