The Carousel of Life



Life is like a Carousel,

Sometimes it is up.  Sometimes it is down.  

It can make you dizzy.  It can spin like hell.

Just enjoy the ride.





This weeks inspiration was lines.  Lines can be fun to play around with, they can help draw your eye to the focus point of an image or to help create shape, movement or drama to your image.

I used the lines  all over the carousel ( the lights, the poles the mirrors and the facade) to try and create movement,  fun and a little bit of quirkiness to the above images.

What gorgeous images. I love the vintage color, it suits the subject. And lines are a good inspiration - I always find them a bit difficult to photograph - to make sure they are straight for example.

Wonderful photos. I love your interpretation of lines and your comparison of it to life. The vintage looks reminds me of being a child on a carousel. I like the movement and way that lines add to a composition as you pointed out. Great job.
