For Uwe I have chosen a photo with a Rolleiflex, which is an homage to Robert Doisneau, possibly the greatest artist using this wonderful camera.

Nicely framed and printed and the light has lifted the contrast and depth of the scene, it all works fine. It is a busy scene but you have made the roundabout stand out from the background. Not certain that I would survive a ride on it, the last time I rode on one of these many many years ago I staggered off to darkened room for the rest of the day.

Thank for the kind comments. It was made some years ago in Trier on the old market, which is a very busy place. Still wonder that I was allowed for that second without a tourist going by. The reference to Doisneau in teh details is another lonely roundabout: https://www.moma.org/collection/works/52532.

Frank: I tried your link and it went no where, for me only to realise that you had put a full stop at the end of the link. Smile


So the link to the great picture, should read:

A nice shot Frank, but a little sad, suits the year we have had, sad to see the whole place deserted

The stationary, silent, colourless and empty carousel. It goes againt everything to do with merry-go-rounds.

I really like the lighting. It makes the carousel stand out in a 3-dimensional way. The fact that there are no people creates a very strange atmosphere. It could be a film set, or perhaps something untoward has happened?

The merry-go-round of life, no longer going round. How true.
