It looks very autumnal ;-)
Ginnie Hart: Oh, yes, Cherry. That's one of the reasons why I love autumn so much...the fair!

This is a classic, what great colours and we had such a great Golden Hour and sunset.
The decorations on this wheel are wonderful.
(A wonderful reason to go back)
Ginnie Hart: This one ride became the symbol of the fair for us that night, MLMA. It really was the best fair ever! Bedankt.
Love the colors, Ginnie!!! Great fun!!
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Elizabeth. I don't think we've ever had more fun at the fair!

awwww what a lovely timeless photo smile even the ticket booth is charming!
Ginnie Hart: Thank yoiu, Elaine. The fair has a special place in our hearts since Nicholas was 2 in 2002. It just gets better and better.

Oh yes, I recall - and grandson Nicholas is with you - a fairground as we dream of and as we remember from childhood days!
Ginnie Hart: The fair gets better for us with each consecutive year, Philine. I feel like it's helping me to regain the childhood I never really had...through Nicholas, indeed!

That ride has been around for a long time Ginnie... there is so much to look at in this picture... is this the same ride that Astrid captured with the golden sunset behind it?
....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: This is indeed the same ride Astrid captured with the swings swinging out wide, Peter. It became the icon of the fair this year for us both. We LOVE this fair! smile

Not so much a country fair but more a giant photo-opportunity!
Ginnie Hart: Exactly, Chris. This year Nicholas had a school buddy with him so Astrid and I were able to go off on our own and really concentrate on the photo op! smile

I can picture you and Astrid on this, as you did at Blists Hill, Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: LOL, Lisl. Maybe next year we'll try it, in memory of Blists Hill. I don't think either one of us thought of that! It sure was fun to watch...and capture.
I didn't know you ran a Carousel....grin
Ginnie Hart: This actually is that wild swing-about, Bill, that Astrid captured in the air a few days back. It's crazier than a carousel, I might add. grin

Just superb ! lovely light and warm tones
Ginnie Hart: Many kind thanks, Marie. This became the iconic ride of the fair for us this year. It captured all my attention!

Sounds like a very good reason to me. What great colours! I hope you and Astrid had a go? I think the only thing which shows this to be Amercia is the safety bollards on the right.
Ginnie Hart: We actually didn't ride this, Alan, but took enough pics of it to sink a ship! Maybe next year we'll have a go on it. I guess you're right about the safety bollards. It amazes me what I DON'T see of them in Europe. smile

Glorious colours Ginnie. It's nice to see an American one
Ginnie Hart: Thank, Janet. This is the best one I've ever seen in my life, which is one of the reasons why we keep going back, year after year!
This is so much like a traditional English country fair ground.
Ginnie Hart: It covers a lot of space, Brian, making it the biggest fair I've ever seen. It wears you out. smile
