The Flying Circus



I mentioned earlier this week that the fair was in town
and we took the boys for some fun...and fried food, 
of course.  Sam's favorite ride was The Flying Circus.

It was also my favorite ride to photograph...

LOVED these photos. You have such a joyful approach in them.

Glad you got to enjoy the fried foods, although SURELY it was before you rode that thing. :)

Blessings to you - Marsha

Yes, i think i would be choosing to be the photographer rather than the rider on this one. you've certainly taken some great shots - particularly love your first one.
