So pretty, and you ended up with very nice contrasts! Yellow vs. purple, light vs. dark, warm vs. cool, solid vs. dappled, defined vs. soft. Lots of visual excitement in all those opposing design forces. Amazing how perfectly it all works together.
Very cool. Early in the summer my husband and I made the drive to visit a local historic carousel, that sadly, was slated to be dismantled and packed away for the foreseeable future (its fate is still unknown). We got some great shots, and I'm glad we went, because there may never be another chance to photograph it.
AH! This image takes my breath away!
