Tally-ho, pip-pip and all that...

Whenever I see a carousel, I think of that scene in Mary Poppins where they ride off of the carousel and along the animated English country side right into a horse race that Mary Poppins, of course, wins (sorry for the spoiler).
When we came across this carousel in Paris, I was a little disappointed that I had black & white film in my camera... but in the end, I actually really like the results. They feel old and ironic somehow (though I am sure an English teacher somewhere would tell me that there is nothing ironic about these photos and that I clearly don't actually know what the word means).
But here they are anyway...

  1. I *love* the carousels in Paris. They seem random and charming. What a way to make a city feel like a fun place. Love your first two shots of the edges of the canopy/roof.
