      MM - LOL! You've shot while driving and still live to tell? Daredevil! This was fun but only because I could lower the window and lean the zoom out like a gangster with a machine gun.

      Zach - Thanks so much. : }

      Ah, Gerard - Une grande roue est un spectacle assez commun, mais elle provoque toujours l'intrigue et de plaisir. Pourquoi est-ce?

      Not to eaves drop, but I think it's because of the memories ;).
      This is a spectacular composition.

      Thank you, Patianne. I'm glad you joined in the conversation; it wasn't meant to be private, but to ease the language barrier between Gerard and me. I do think you are right about memories. And I am flattered you could understand my creaky college French. : D

      I love ferris wheel shots. Excellent in B&W...and 60 mph to boot! Lovely shot :)

      Thanks, David. It helped that the zoom has VR. The POV was just luck. I could only squeeze out three shots. The other two were cluttered with trees.

      Jennifer - Thank you. : } I love them, too. They appeal to me so much more than roller coasters.

      the clarity is remarkable, especially considering you were moving in a car and with a 200mm lens, no less! I am a real sucker for amusement park photos......never tire of them....beautiful clouds, too
