Weekly Winners - 05-31-09



Weekly Winners is hosted by Lotus - Sarcastic Mom.



Some of my favorite photos from this week.

I made reference to having access to the carnival grounds the other day when there were no people there. It was closed on Wednesday, but there was an entrance that was open, no signs indicating I wasn't free to enter, so I did. I spent about an hour wandering around taking photos until a couple of security guards spotted me and quickly escorted me out. But not before I got what I came for!



Self-portrait. Fun with mirrors.


This is one ride I think I'd still enjoy going on.



Some of you wanted to see the carousel in color after my sepia post of it last week:



I love being in the right place at the right time WITH my camera. This was in front of the World Trade Center, Portland. I'm used to seeing young folks play hackey sack in Portland, but they're generally not in dress shirts and ties.





Allium now in full bloom.



This one bears repeating. Ms. P explores everything.

Well you just never know what will be tasty unless you eat it first!

As everyone else has said I too enjoyed the carousel shots.
