County fair rides have always fascinated me. There is a quality they have just by looking at them that transports you back to when you were 8. The bald guy is an old looking 8 year old. Another great snap!

Thank you! I agree with you - it's something about those airbrushed, brightly colored paint jobs and the shiny, shiny lights. Somehow, I am always a teenager again and want to look around for my group of high school friends.

Well…not to be too cosmic…but…I am someone you have known since high school! Just not so sure if I am your favorite guy though. Simply wanting to send good vibes and lend support for your artistic endeavors. Like I said...I like your work. Check out my link sometime. All the best!

I can look at photos of carnival rides all day. Is this a temp carnival set-up in your area? Any dark rides?

skipfish ... given all the posts on Rush at your blog, i have a fair idea of your identity. I appreciate your support and comments! I wondered if you were someone i knew.

It was last year's Delaware County fair, Karswell, and there was one dark ride though I cannot remember its exact nature. Here's a picture of part of the exterior.


Music is posted for a short time, and while I use it in part to (hopefully, though not always) go along with the theme of the photo, I also post it in hopes someone will give it a try and fall in love with it as I have. Perhaps they will then seek out more by the artist and buy more cds. That's how it works with me, anyway. If you like it, pick it up at the store; support the artists you love.
