Fairground Attraction

By TrevBatWCC    
At the bottom end of King's Square in York, just a few metres away from the caricaturist shown in my last but one upload, there was a fairground carousel. A bit difficult getting the whole carousel in with all the bloomin' tourists getting in the way especially it being Good Friday - so went in close for these two shots.

Many thanks to Bernie (BRITCHIE) for his User Award on my previous upload Holy Trinity Church, Goodramgate , most appreciated 🏆👍

Raw images processed in Adobe Camera Raw, tweaked in Nik Collection's Viveza 2 and Photoshop Elements 14.

Thanks again to everyone for your votes & comments on my previous uploads, it really is appreciated and encouraging 👍

Think you've captured all the fun of the fair so well.
Amazingly sharp at 1/80 sec.

These are spectacular. Very few around these days. These appear to be in pristine condition, what a treat.

I'm not keen on fairgrounds, except for the Teacups ride and these lovely carousel horses. You can keep the pirate ship though; once was more than enough. Smile

Q. When you are galloping full speed on a horse, being chased by a giraffe and a lion, what do you do?
A. Get your drunken a*se off the merry-go-round!
Brilliant image

Two great images showing the details and brilliant colours of these fairground horses Trev, much better than the whole carousel with added tourists.SmileSmile
