I absolutely LOVE carousels. They're full of warm memories and they're charming.Although, I used to work in a home for the profoundly retarded. There was a broken carousel that sat at the very back of the property at the edge of a wooded area. It was one of the lonliest sights... That one kind of broke me heart. I wrote a few stories about it while sitting on one of the horses. Anyway... as I was saying. Great photos. Fond thoughts did flood into my mind.ReplyDeleteRepliesReplyPietro Brosio1:37 AMRemembering childhood which was happy for some, perhaps a bit sad for others...Great images, Sandy.ReplyDeleteRepliesReplyAnonymous2:40 AMexcellent photography. i would like a ride.ReplyDeleteRepliesReplyKay4:38 AMThis brings back such lovely childhood memories.
