Day 192 – Ring of Fire

12 Oct

This isn’t a ferris wheel but some smaller version were the people are enclosed in a little cage that spins as the whole thing goes around. I seriously can’t remember the name of it! LOL. I am getting old I guess.  I loved the results, but let me just say that long exposure is very hard when you do not have a tripod and are trying not to breathe or move. I would have gotten a better result with the right equipment but I am happy with the one I was able to capture.

    Are you sure that’s not just a giant peppermint candy?

    I like it! Makes it look like the thing is going at a speed of R17.

    “R is a velocity measure, defined as a reasonable speed of travel that is consistent with health, mental wellbeing and not being more than say five minutes late. It is therefore clearly an almost infinitely variable figure according to circumstances, since the first two factors vary not only with speed taken as an absolute, but also with awareness of the third factor. Unless handled with tranquility this equation can result in considerable stress, ulcers and even death.
    R17 is not a fixed velocity, but it is clearly far too fast.” – The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy
