Slinked, Again ?
I take no credit for this idea. It came strictly from the fine photographers here on BP. My niece had this slinkly, and I couldn't pass up the chance to try it too. 105/2.5 macro lens, Valvia film, tripod, and mirror lock. F/2.5

You made a 50 cent slinky look like a million bucks. Just gorgeous.

This truly is a terrific image Stanley!! It has a great compositional design and use of color flow. To me, it looks like a rainbow of colors spewing from a fountain. Really nice work!

Well Stanley, I have to admit that I didn't think it was a flower. I knew it had to be a slinky r DRYER tubing or something...but I couldn't figure out how you got it to look so beautiful!

I'm truly impressed! You did a fantastic job in DDR here! Big congrats on the Finalist as well!
