Night View, at the Carousel

Carousel, Bryant Park
Photo by myself, in Bryant Park.

You wouldn't think there'd be a carousel in the middle of New York, but there is.

For two dollars a ride, kids have their choice of brightly colored horses to perch on. The carousel runs all year round, even in the dead of winter.

I like the black and white photo of the merry go round. I wonder how elaborate the paint job is? I mean does it stay nice and bright all year long -- the colors?

TheRE are carousels in a lot of towns in the world. Why not in N.Y?

This is such an evocative image of childhood. You do monochrome images with such style.

My little Elena loves the merry go round... Here in Verona it only comes over Christmas holidays so it has something special, I think, in fact Elena associates it with Santa Claus!
