Weekly Photo Challenge: Object

Wonder and Unease

Carousels, or Merry-Go-Rounds, have fascinated me for years: the odd accompanying music, the hidden speed of its spinning and the bright, colourful lights. But it has been the level of detail contained in these amusement ride contraptions that has always drawn my attention.

Late last year, whilst passing by one of the carousels down by the river, I noticed that they were closing up. I cheekily asked the owner if I could take some photos and he gave me 10 minutes to wander around (Thank you, kind sir).

I finally got to take a good look at one and this is my favourite of the photos that I took. For me, the image seems to capture the mix of wonder and unease that these things generated in me when I was a child.
 
You can see how other bloggers responded to the challenge at The Daily Post.

A number of my images are now available to buy in a variety of print sizes, cards and gifts. To look through the available galleries, please visit: emdubbya.com.

    1. Thank you, Tina. I was grateful for the time I was given. And the owner also took time to tell me about his carousel – which was really interesting. His horses were named and apparently the names have to be registered – who knew?
