Friday My Town Shoot Out: Silhouettes

This weeks topic chosen by Carrie. I'm so happy to share some of these. I thought they were flops, but they were just silhouettes!

Our town has a home owned carnival so this sets at the fairgrounds year round.



Small town wooden grain elevator.




More carnival ride.

These aren't flops at all. They are wonderful. I love the carnival ride and the last photo. These are really cool. I wish I had got some good shots of different things. Very nice.

Mary, They are all excellent! You are taking some stunning photos! I am partial to the corn coming out of the auger and the Carnival Ride. I find it interesting that your town owns all it's own rides..that is way cool:)

I love the ferris wheel. Really shows the end of summer.

Pauline said...

Golly, those first and last shots! Fantastic!!

I find these images *haunting* . . . you have a perfect background in the carnival ride pictures. The combine pictures remind me of the movie, Days of Heaven.

Excellent work.

I'm not surprised Jen chose the last shot for her weekly 'best shoits'. It is brilliant and so evocative of my idea of the American plains.
