Freak Out and Ferris Wheel

Newer Older

After the balloon glow last Friday night, I hung out around the Midway and experimented a bit with some long exposures on the moving rides.

Really liked the light patterns rendered by this ride. The problem was the lights on the passenger seats didn't stay on all the time. They seemed to turn on and off intermittantly and the ride only had one or two full-height swings, so it took a few tries to get one with which I was happy.

I do have to give props to the various law enforcement officers and security personnel who were at the fair that night: They were present and attentive, but never hassled me even when I had my tripod set up for these shots.
