Abandoned Ferris Wheel

Newer Older

On a sleepy morning of a cross-country road trip, my wife pointed this out on the side of the road and we decided to stop by and check it out.

If you'd like to purchase a print of this, check it out on my Etsy page - I'll have more photos up in the future!

While you're visiting, check out my other abandoned photography! www.flickr.com/photos/cityeyes/collections/72157606119463...

    You're welcome!

    Why don't you just put your name on the corner or something?

    It bugs me to see so may pieces on the internet that the authors don't put their names on o_O

    Because I'd like to think the best of people and don't want to mess up my photos with a stupid watermark. Most have the common sense to attribute where they got their images. The first weak link seems to be Russian photoblogs and people get images from there without posting attribution.

    I don't know, maybe I'll start doing it. They don't take any extra time for me because i can just add them into my workflow, but I really hate doing it.

    Yeah I found my photos actually on someones page on flickr, I was so pissed...they were passing it off as theirs. But I turned them into yahoo and they took care of it. But if you dont mind sharing info on this place, I would love to know a location. I live in NC. If you dont want to share I totally understand.

    That's insane. I don't know what I'd do if I found my photos on somebody else's Flickr (although Urban Remains have been using one of my photos without asking me and they won't get back to my emails.)

    hey! I know you aren't on here really anymore, but I just wanted to let you know I just saw this photo on tumblr (18,396 reblogs for the one I saw) and put a link back to this photo. Some idiot put the source as himself.
