A shot in the dark…

Way up there....

On a recent trip down South I found myself wandering around the Santa Monica Pier. I had never been there but I’ve always wanted to go. I’ve driven by it at night and seen the Ferris wheel looming high in the sky like a colossal rainbow spacecraft. Below the hoards of people lining up to board it like it’s the mother ship.  I understand the fascination with these places but I guess I’m more of a spectator when it comes to amusement park rides. The thought of strapping myself into a large mechanical device run and maintained by people who may not remember to oil their own chains let alone the one that holds my life in it’s grasp makes me a little wary. I ate Funnel Cake and meandered through the crowds, captivated.

These are a few of the Photos….
