fairground pt.1

Last night, after dinner, my friend Candice and me, saw a travelling amusement park and immediately did a U-turn. At first, all I wanted to do was take pictures. Ever since I bought my trusty Nikon, I harboured dreams of capturing the bright and colourful lights of a park. Who knew walking in that the both of us would succumb to these lights and ran around like a pair of giggly girls. Yes, this begins another series for KLDP. Hope you enjoy this one.

Today is Aidil Fitri. The beginning of another new year in the Muslim calendar. To all my Malaysian readers, Maaf Zahir dan Batin. To everyone who celebrates this month: May the wheels of love, peace and understanding spin forever. Assalamuailaikum.

Check out another fairground's shots over at Helsinki.

The colors and design is wonderful. Yes, it does make one child-like, and I can't think of better qualities!!

Outstanding photo. I have looked for a similar photo opportunity and not found one yet. But the very next fair which comes to town I will surely attend.

Oh Edwin you've done it again, your photos are always so powerful and beautiful. This one is truly exceptional. I'd love to think that it's all thanks to your trusty Nikon but there's talent in there too! I'll be back for more, as always!!!

Oh YEEESSSS! You can be as proud as a PEACOCK of this one, it's just great.
And to think I had 8 days a couple of weeks ago to wander round the annual fairground and shoot to my heart's content. Except it was THAT 8 days, the worst & I was understandably less than whelmed re-picture shooting.
Always a great subject, but I must tell you, it's not the Nikon, or the Canon or the Olympus, or the Leica etc. You don't have to look far to find results with a Nikon that wouldn't do justice to a Kodak Brownie box! Proof? I'll mail you, right!
Oh,and can I now call you the Ed of Eid? Enjoy those parties!

Edwin, it's like watching a new episode of TV series. We will be glued to this new series :-)

Mention fairgrounds, and John from Melbourne appears above this comment. It brings back memories of Moomba in Melbourne.

heheheheheheh...thanks guys!

who would've thought a 5 second shutter delay would end up like this? I keep looking at the shot myself and can't believe it! I'm so glad that we went to the park and even happier that so many of you are enjoying it. I hope the rest of the series is equally as enjoyable. Good to feel young and giggly again.

Lisi, thanks for Maggie AND Mao!

Stewie, Ed of Eid! That's brilliant!

Kris, you'll see the 'girls' at the end of the series. ;)
