The Whirling Carousel

A Carousel or Merry-Go-Round
There was a nice, old-style carousel plonked right in the middle of Festival City the other day. Luckily I’d brought along a camera, and the little Kodak performed admirably (it really is a boon to have some manual controls on these compacts). Myself, less so, for I took a lot of photos, but only one — this one — was any good.

This is a two second exposure on shutter priority, hand-held with my dad’s shoulder acting as tripod.

Our parents’ shoulders are useful for so many things.
