This shot of a millstone became a bit of a milestone: my 70th photograph to appear in Flickr Explore, the 500 most interesting shots of the day. I took this at the windmill in the little village of Zalk, part of the municipality of Kampen. The close-up approach and the side point of view turns a fairly common object into something more special.
