  1. Thats a really impressive photo. It contrasts well between the almost monochromatic foreground and background with the motion of the colours on the merry go round and at the same time not distracting from the statue in the foreground.

  2. Fantastic eye and composition! Intriguing with just a touch of creepy, along with the strong contrast of color versus monochromatic, then motion versus stillness is extremely powerful. I nod to your genius! ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Ah…. So familiar! I wonder why… ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Westminster are refurbishing the square at the moment.
    The whole square is now closed to the public.
    The work is scheduled to finish in 2012…

  4. Ok, this is VERY cool. Love how you composed Charlie right there, in front of the carousel and you captured the speed of the ride. Oh carousels… sigh… used to operate one years ago. Every night I had crazy dreams in loud garish carousel music.

    • Thanks Amber! Yeah, I can see how operating a carousel would give you some very weird dreams. (We have one here that plays the carouselised-version of Phantom of the Opera, which would definitely be interesting dream inspiration/background music!)
