The Bethlehem Fair was a lot of fun for Adella and her friend this year. I am not a fan of amusement rides and don't care much for heights, so it's always a strange, surreal experience to watch my daughter climb into these contraptions and disappear into the sky. She is fearless and knows how to have fun. I am grateful her friends will share the joy and I can watch from good old terra firma.

    I so agree with you-my feet on the ground is so much nicer than flying around in circles. I use to love the rides but somewhere along the way I became a coward.

  3. I love ferris wheels but am past my prime for any of the other rides. Wonderful shots and I know your daughter had a blast on the rides with her friends.

  4. The second picture in particular is a really neat shot.

    I am with your daughter; I love the rides. My back no longer allows the rollercoasters, though.

    I am too scared to take those rides. Strangely, I was not scared when I was small. Wonder why?

    Your photos almost make me want to have a ride, but...then I remember how high it is. I'm an on-the-ground person, too.

  28. Cool pictures - love the lights in the night shots.

  29. Funny! I can so relate. Except, my kids beg and beg and beg for me to take some of these rides with them. This year, I had an excuse because my doctor gave me strict orders not to get on ANY ride till he releases me.

  30. I am scared of ferris wheels. I'm always afraid my seat will tip and I will go plummeting to my death. But I love roller coasters and tons of other rides. :) I love how you caught it with the lights blinking too. :)

  38. Oh how much fun!!

    Made my tummy giggle just looking at it!

    Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

  39. Sandy, that first photo makes my stomach go all weak. I can feel it dropping really fast, even though Ferris wheels don't go that fast. I'm one who's sworn off the rides that make you go down abruptly. My daughter and my husband love them, but my son and I are lovers of the Tilt-a-Whirl and the Scrambler. I nonetheless find your photographs thrilling!

    And I'm always game for cotton candy. That's my speed.

  40. I don't like carousels that high either. I prefer to keep my feet on the ground!
