REDISCOVERING MYSELF THROUGH PHOTOGRAPHY

Musing on the Past

It's been a very long time since I was on a carnival ride.....they were never terribly appealing even when I was young!  Every summer I was  participating in 4-H livestock competitions at various stock shows, almost all of which had carnivals, and carnival food.   When  I visited a stock show this past week to watch my great-niece, I couldn't miss the flags!  Joining with Nancy's Tuesday Muse.

So colorful! Carnivals bring out the kid in us - I love carnival food, especially cotton candy! xo

What a great gauge of summertime fun! I only ever rode the tilt-a-whirl at fairs. But the atmosphere was wonderful.

Awesome photo. Almost beachy vintage feel to it. Great job on the texturing application!!

What a neat picture, love the editing! I'm not a big carnival ride fan either, they always look too rickety for me.
P.S. Love the new header shot! :)

Oh, I used to love carnival rides (still do!!)
I really love this image, Evelyn, and your processing on it.

I was a 4-H'er and we learned to sew and cook. I have great memories of meeting other clubs at the local college to square dance. And now I cannot wait for the county fair! Love that photo!

I'm with you in that I never liked the rides much either. You gave this a very nice nostalgic feel with your edit.
