Merry Go Round


The horses look terrified, the women look on the edge of tears, the little boy looks away. What a strange moment to freeze in time.

This looks like something out of a David Lynch film.

This is such a painful photo. Pain. Pain. Pain.

Yes, this goes way beyond the "no one smiled in black and white photos" rule.

seriously, a mom who has tried to photograph two children on merry go rounds for almost five years, averaging about a dozen merry go round rides per summer, it DAMN NEAR IMPOSSIBLE TO HAVE BOTH KIDS LOOKING AT THE CAMERA AND SMILING.

out of the hundreds of tries, in all that time, I have maybe one shot!

that's it. I gave up trying to photograph them in the amusement parks this summer.
