Carnival Lights

Every Spring around the same time in April the carnival comes to town. Pretty fluorescent lights illuminate the night sky, loud music and squeals of laughter can be heard from afar, and the heavenly smell of sugar coated zeppoles fill the air. With so many fun details at a carnival, I thought this was the perfect opportunity to practice shooting at night. And so as soon as I was ready, I packed my camera and headed for the door---only to stop myself midway at the mirror and realize my bag looked like I was carrying a bowling ball. --_-- Darn it! I thought about the possibility of my camera dangling off my neck as I rode the rides, slipping out of my hands on the Ferris Wheel and breaking into a million pieces. Hmm take it or leave it?---Oh come on was I kidding myself or what? I knew I wouldn't be able to walk out the door without my camera, soooo I took the risk. Yup, I got to ride the Ferris Wheel, eat my yummy zeppoles annnnd even managed to take some cool photos. Now THAT is what you call living on the wild side ;). Enjoy!

My favorite =D
