Weekend Reflections: le retour de la fête foraine

The funfair is back! I'm no fan but I like photographing it. Here's a red, red, red late afternoon shot for James' Weekend Reflections.
------------------------
Je ne suis pas fan mais aime bien y aller prendre des photos. Voici un début de soirée tout rouge pour les Reflets du Weekend de James.

Avec la pluie il semble que les clients se font rares. Jolie photo au rouge intense.

Travelling fairs were often the high light at this time of year especially for the smaller towns. As a child they were fascinating on dark cold winter evenings.

Effectivement, on y fait de belles photos, et le reflet ressemble à du feu. ceci dit, j'ai une sainte horreur des fêtes foraine, va savoir pourquoi, même petite , ça m'a toujours fait peur..

VP said...

I agree about the fairs, but they are really a precious source of interesting shots. Like this one.

Scary reflection. Know what you mean about funfairs, but they can be - well, fun!

Diane said...

Like you I am not a fan of fairs, but they do make for great photo opportunities, and rain makes it twice as good because of the reflections. xxx

I'm with you - interesting to look at, but it's like someone stuck a vacuum cleaner hose in your wallet. Bugs Bunny!

Ca va flamber aux machines à sous...

I think this is fabulous. Love the red, leaves, wet pavement and of course the reflection. I don't particularly like going to fairs either, but I agree about the picture opportunities.

That is obviously the place to go if you want to have some colours for your photos :-)

Très bien vu : tout bête, mais super efficace ! J'aime bien !

J'adore les fêtes foraines : pour les manèges à sensation (j'ai une peur bleue à cause de mon vertige, mais j'y vais quand même !), les lumières, l'impression festive... Ca donne toujours des clichés extraordinaires, comme celui-ci qui est vraiment empreint de merveilleux.

It must have rained shortly before you too this! Excellent photo...I really like the detail in the sculpture.

We're still in Colorado. Denise is improving, but the rest of us have been sick. Hopefully, we'll get home next week. Thanks for caring!

Clytie said...

Wow, red and yellow. Gorgeous!

J´adore toute sorte de fêtes, par ici et par là aussi :)
Bisous pour un bon week end

It is interesting, isn't it, how there are things, people, events we don't like much but love to photograph! I wonder what that means? Good shot, Ciel.

Rebecca said...

Beautiful reflection with all the colors of autumn. The pool of water in the foreground is powerful!
