Thank you to all for the comments on The Wrong Tuba.
I hope I made a few of you smile or laugh...that's what Silly Sunday is all about...bringing a smile to people's lips and not taking the photography toooo seriously.

I am dead chuffed with these four uploads. Taken on Saturday at the village fete, where a fairground was attracting a lot of interest.
These were whizzing around overhead at about 1000 miles per hour and each chair was coming round every 3 seconds or so and at varying heights. That I managed to capture any of the chairs containing passengers is in itself an achievement!

As ever, thanks for bothering.

That's a grand set, Malc real in-yer-face stuff with crazy angles and speeds.
You are 100% right about Silly Sunday Smile
I think Mick should keep off the Guinness until after he's been on the fairground rides Smile

"You would 'never see me on this amusement park ride,' Malc." Four excellent & well-togged action images with nice color, clarity, & composition. Artistic work, indeed.

A thought came to me as I viewed these fine shots.

"If we kept the children up there all the time would it stop the having a mobile permanently stuck in the ear ?"

When I attempt to talk to the Grandson he looks up slowly and says WHAT.

There endeth my thought for the day.

Grumpy Granddad.

Gah! Some of these give me vertigo Tongue especially v3. Were you on the ride? Checking the EXIF I see a focal length of 43mm, so you were close. It is amazing to see the different expressions on people's faces and how each reacts differently to this kind of experience.

My mother visited us in Florida when John and I got married. We went to Disneyworld and that year Space Mountain was a brand new ride. We waited in line over one hour to get on the roller coaster, and I remember the three of us each reacting differently - my mother was screaming, my husband was laughing and my voice was frozen - wonder what our faces would have shown?

A fantastic set of fairground images, you've captured some fabulous expressions and colours. You've captured all the fun of the fair in these excellent action shots. I guess these youngsters were fair game for your long lens!
