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.
