Whirling around and around

A merry-go-round or whatever you call it kept the kids entertained in the Peace Park last night as Santa visited courtesy of 96FM.
Even the Lord Mayor of Cork turned up. He had no problems finding parking. I saw his car parked up on the broad new pavement outside the park. The “07 C 1” number plate is very distinctive.

    What a fabulous shot, Donncha! Came across your site by a fortunate accident – I was searching out sites to find a copy of the 1933 version of the film, “Alice in Wonderland”. A great photo to inspire my search! Thanks! carol.

  2. Thanks Kieran,

    Camera was in Aperture priority mode and according to the exif data it was set to f/8 which gave me an exposure time of 1.3 seconds.

    I have other shots taken with a smaller aperture but the exposure time was too long. All the figures around the carousel (I knew I’d remember that word eventually!) were too blurred.

    Shot from the surrounding wall by resting the camera on it! 🙂
