Wordless Wednesday: Ferris Wheel

The Orange County Fair starts on July 15th this year.  They always start setting up the rides and some of the other features at the end of May.  I wanted to get a photo of the La Grand Wheel before the Fair starts.  I took a zillion pictures, and I’m going to try some different editing techniques on them.  I’m going to print out some of the pictures and hang them in our master bedroom.

Welcome to “Angry Julie Monday’s Wordless Wednesday Linky”!

If this your first time here, HELLO! I do a link-up every Wednesday! Post a picture(s) and link back to it here. Wordless Wednesday is a great day to post an awesome picture that “speaks” for itself, no words needed.

I’m trying to make it to every participants post if I can.  I made it halfway last week. It just depends on my schedule.

Be sure to check out Wordless Wednesday Link-Ups at these other sites also:

(P.S. if you do a Wordless Wednesday or similar link-up, let me know. I will add you to my list above.)

Also, Lindsey from The Pleated Poppy does “What I Wore Wednesday” every week with a great big link-up

and

Krystina from Lollipops does “What I Love Wednesday” every week with a great big link-up.

Be sure to check out their posts too. I wish I had the extra time to do all of these fabulous link-ups.

I'm new here! Hello! I found you from the email I just got about a bunch of us OC mom bloggers being featured in the OC Parenting mag. Which-why didn't they tell us this at the BEGINNING of the month? I'm famous now. ANYWHO-I just wanted to stop by and say hi! I'm glad I'm finding some more OC mamas here! I'm fairly new to Cali so it's always nice to find people who actually know what's going on around here.

It's funny, I can't stand riding on ferris wheels, but I LOVE photos of them. And yours definitely does not disappoint! Love the perspective and high contrast against that beautiful sky! :>

Love. I recommend the book The Great Wheel by Robert Lawson. Fun read (it's a kids book) and educational about the history of the Ferris wheel.

Our fair is always in the fall when it is just getting cold around here. i guess it is something to look forward to because there really isn't too much else to do at that time of year around here. what a great photo.i haven't ridden a ferris wheel in years.

I love the retro feel of this shot - the angle, the color, the style. Perfect!

Oh I love those fairs, unfortunately we don't have them here. And this is one huge wheel. I'm sure you can make beautiful prints, maybe a sequence when you edit them differently.

I know. I had several people I know text me pictures of the magazine. It was funny! Anyway, I'm here in Orange County too. I've been blogging for four years! Nice to "meet you"!

I'm totally scared to ride huge ferris wheels too. Hence why I photograph them.
