Such a pretty old merry-go-round! I love the way the darkness "frames" the mirror, so we just get the reflection, no distraction! I also seriously need to get braver about capturing random people in my photos - I'm just so shy about it! Have a great weekend!

Ah j'adore les carrousels... Et cette photo est particulièrement belle, avec le reflet du visage en relief dans le médaillon central... Un bon week-end à toi et aux tiens, James !

J'aime bien la tête du monsieur tout à fait à droite! tout content d'avoir retrouvé son âme d'enfant?..

I started to look for the reflection when it dawned on me that the merry go round was reflected from a mirror. It's morning and I am a bit off today.

Ils sont vraiment magnifiques ces manèges, de véritables oeuvres d'art !
Il fallait trouver le miroir pour en prendre la réflection. Encore une réussite...
bon week end !

The darkness adds a great sparkle to this carrousel. I could tell that it was not in France as the rotation is clockwise. Great shot and a beautiful merry-go-round.

Bises,

Wonderful! I have once visited the place when my aunt brought us to California. It reminds me of traveling around the world like a merry-go-round. Beautiful shot! Thanks for sharing this inspirational photo!
