The Whirling of the Swings

The Swings, II, originally uploaded by Jaquandor.

While The Daughter was riding the bumper cars six or seven times consecutively, I spent some time studying this ride, just next door. It's the usual "spinning swing" ride, but I loved the pseudo-Victorian decor of the ride -- the paintings and the coloring and the ornate scrollwork and all that. Very cool. I love it when carnival rides don't just look like a bunch of steel rods, gears, and pulleys.
