Rosenberg, Texas

People on the Big Drop Carnival Ride at our County Fair.

You get a nice view at the top... for a second or two. And then you plunge back to earth.
Not for me.

#6 for the October Scavenger Hunt

Fine silhouette work, Lynne. *V*
I'd hate it too!

Nor for me! I hate heights! But a terrific shot, the silhouette makes it more impressive and frightful. V

You must really get a wonderful view from up there, but you have no time to enjoy...
So I take the time to enjoy your lovely picture which is so beautifully presented in this wonderful evening light!

They always freak me out a bit.

I love the people in silhouette and the flag in all it's colourful glory. A great shot. V

Not to some people, but to me, yes.

I'm having trouble preparing myself to go see Sandra Bullock in Gravity...I could never go on this!!
carol j. phipps07-Oct-2013 03:06
Excellent composition.
Julie Oldfield07-Oct-2013 00:41
I really like how you exposed this. V

The most terrible moment is when it stops on top. Position of the seats changes, so that you are looking straight down to the ground. Had to do this with my daughter a few years ago. Never again!!!

Great Shot. I saw this ride on the news. Don't know who is more screwy the inventor or the people who actually ride it!
