Summer Stock Sunday: The Ride

Back when I was younger and stronger (last summer) I volunteered for a youth mentoring group. We took the kids to a local amusement park.

I was thrilled to be event photographer, it kept me off the rides.

The kids had a great day. A child's laughter wafting through the air on a beautiful summer day is bliss.

I would never take a ride on this - yes I know - I never had a coaster ride either - too chicken - look at it - it does look scary high!

Great capture - the shot has a terrific sense of movement (and terror!).

I can't believe I actually used to ride these things when I was a teenager. Not for all the money in the world would I get on there now...

I would never get on that thing!! Our small town fair is coming at the end of July. I can't wait because I love taking pictures there.

Oh my word! I'd want to be the event photographer, too -- just seeing the picture makes my stomach churn :-).

Pharoah's Fury? Indeed.

Ironically thats one ride I'd still go on ;).

Definitely summery! There was a time when I would have loved to ride that thing.

Leora said...

Great job. My son would love that ride. I would absolutely hate it, even watching it. My stomach turns upside down just thinking about amusement park rides. You captured it well!

Jan said...

Wonderful capture.

Laughter...? I hear screams!

Lovely photograph. A small sample of what must have been a really fun day for everyone!

cool shot!

I LOVE those opposing curves and the arc of movement! Wow! Hope you are well, my friend.

I'd like this ride. I see a grandparent there, sans the grandchild.
Thanks for your visit and nice comment. I am thinking of using the poem piece for my other blog soon. I am glad you liked the garden. I have a lot of pictures of it.

and the enthusiasm of the children is so infectious too!

Oh, I love this photo. So perfect in every way: color, focus, composition. And I'm with you, better to hear and see the bliss of the kids than to go on the rides yourself.

I do appreciate your visit although I am sometimes slow in returning the visit. Thank you for your comment!

There is no way I would ever get on one of those ... no. way.

Those rides are not for me either..lol

Great shot, makes you think of summertime at the seaside.

Your pictures speak of Summer and kids, and fun! Lovely!

MARVELOUS perspective and colors! Methinks the only way I'd enjoy such a place these days is with camera in hand ;--)
Hugs and blessings,
