Photographs for your consideration.

Full Circle

What makes you feel young again?

I wasn’t your usual kid. The carnival didn’t impress me. It was dusty and loud. The rides seemed unsafe. Except for cotton candy, the food was forgettable. But for a photographer, the carnival is a treasure chest. Neon lights. Smiling children. The scarred faces of carnies. Stuffed animals and rubber duckies. It’s all visual cotton candy! I snap pictures incessantly, hopping and skipping like the normal kid I finally have become at 46.

    very nice shot! I can relate to being a kid again at “54”. I see things I am sure I now appreciate more than way back then. And it is a whole new world for me and my little camera to enjoy.
    Big hug,

  7. Lovely shot, and I know what you mean about it being more exciting as an adult photographer as opposed to a scared child 🙂
