This psychedelic image was the Ferris Wheel at the Rose Festival Fun
Center this past June. For reasons, much like astrophysics, that
currently reside outside my realm of knowledge, whoever set the Ferris
Wheel up this year turned it 90 degrees from its usual orientation. I
am not complaining, it gave me the chance for a different take than
past years. The great thing about this Ferris Wheel is that it always
seems to sit right next to the Morrison Bridge, so if you walk up on
the bridge you are about eye level with the center of the wheel. A
very cool way of seeing a Ferris Wheel. I took this on the one night
from the same night) I got down to the Fun Center well after dark, which is a shame as this might have been an interesting photo with the deep blue of dusk as a background. Nonetheless I like it. I do not do too much night time pinhole work as the exposures tend to be a bit...lengthy. I was shooting 400 speed film here, and the lights on the wheel were quite bright so I was able to get away with an 8 minute exposure.
PS. If you want to read a very interesting book that happens to spend some time dealing with the history of the Ferris Wheel, check out Devil In the White City. A fascinating read.
