fairground pt.2


The Carousel. Now, who isn't charmed by this ride? If I wasn't so concerned abut being such an adult, I would've straddled across a unicorn. The both of us were watching all the children whose smiles were beaming. I tried as much as possible to capture a shot of this solitary black horse. All the rest were white or brown. This black one just called out to me...over and over again. It kept going around and wouldn't stand still! The carousel was moving quite fast. I wondered how the kids held on.

merveilleuse photo, tout en mouvement.
j'adore les carousels (surtout celui qui se trouve dans le Bryant Park a New York) et puis on reste enfant quand on va sur un carousel

marvellous photograph, all moving. I adore the carousels (especially that which is in Bryant Park has New York) and then one remains child when one goes on a carousel

I think these are about the only rides I can go on without being sick. Those & dodgems. Great shot by the way.

Ed, the only way is with very fast shutter speed, 1000th, or 2000th second, or more if you have it. It's great though, truly.
Maybe he beckoned that way because he wanted to straddle YOU??!!? UUuuggghh!
