Weekly Photo Challenge: DIALOGUE

Who ever knew I had such talkative photographs? They keep chatting to each other, kind of behind my back. When I began looking and listening, though, I caught ’em in the act:

Carousel Steed


Everything’s ready — who comes here?


Ride ’em, cowgirls!

(Horses and riders captured at the Shelburne Museum, Shelburne, Vermont. What memories were captured for me as well! Although there don’t seem to be any more gold rings to spear on the point of a lance as the carousel goes round and round. Does anyone else remember those?)

    Beautiful examples Judith. The two little girls are adorable. I don’t think I have seen gold rings being speared onto lances around carousels.

      When we were kids and were treated to a ride on a carousel (we called them merry-go-rounds in those days), sometimes they would give you a stick when you got on, and as you rode around you would try and catch a ring suspended from a kind of “arm”. Looked easy, was difficult. The gold is more in my memory, but they were really a kind of gold because if you got a certain number, you would get a free ride!
      I lived in Brooklyn in those days, when Coney Island, was the icon of amusement parks, a kids’ paradise.

    Vaguely, it’s been a while. My brother and I went to Chicago for his 60th birthday, and he wanted to ride the carousel. What fun! It brings back great memories. 🙂

    Too cute! He seems to have a lot to say (as I am sure the girls do too!). 🙂

    Here is my take on the carousel, which probably means that you cannot take me anywhere, anyway, here goes.
    Outrider Looks like there’s been a little shootin’ down at Buck Eye Saloon.

    Inrider I aint lookin’ for trouble, but if trouble come alookin’ for me, I’m gonna be mighty hard to find…..mighty hard.

    I used to be terrified of carousels – the plastic horses seemed super-large and scary to me! (I must have some bad past karma with horses…) [http://smilekiddo.wordpress.com/2012/05/22/16-ride-a-horse/]

  7. Some of those gold rings left here at the Jersey shore amusement park. Maybe we’re just behind the times. Or holding on to the good ol’ days. 🙂
