An unknown girl rides the Flying Horse Carousel, Watch Hill, RI

There was a time when people of all ages enjoyed the simple pleasure of a Carousel ride. Now it seems only the young can still find the magic in that slice of life. The adults stand outside watching (and sometimes worrying) as children become lost in the wonder of it all. Of course no ride would be complete without grasping a brass ring or two.

Taken with a Canon EOS 350D camera with a Sigma AF 18-200mm DC OS Zoom lens on 07/21/08.

iPhoto sepia added.

I had previously uploaded this photo with the title "On a Carousel."
