Swing around away up high

Swing around away up high

The Star Flyer brings people 40m up before swinging them around. Exciting stuff, but I declined. Bumpers and Waltzers were enough for me. 🙂

Around And Around We Go

Around And Around We Go

The Spin City Funfair visits Dingle during the summer months and features the “Star Flyer” where participants are raised about 40m into the air before twirling them around and and around. No way will you get me on something like that! I’ll happily take photos of it though.

Piper's Funfair Crosshaven

A bright and colourful poster advertises Piper’s Funfair in Crosshaven!

In other news, this blog is a finalist in the Irish Blog Awards on Saturday next in the Cork International Airport Hotel. Here are all the finalists. I’m honoured to make it this far as some amazing photoblogs were nominated.

Best Photo Blog – Sponsored by Pix.ie

Thank you Pix.ie for sponsoring the photoblog competition!

PS. Red Mum is organising a photowalk in Cork to coincide with the Blog Awards. Kick off is at noon in the city somewhere. No venue decided yet but perhaps we should meet in a pub? The Old Oak anyone?

Waltzer

Waltzer

A truck in Piper’s Amusements, Crosshaven, bears the logo “Waltzer”. Not quite as much fun as the Waltzers funfair ride but there was no sign of them yesterday!

Candid Canon 20D Cork Funfair Ireland Lights Long Exposure Night Peace Park People Photos Sigma 18-200 Street Urban

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.

Children on the merry-go-round

Children smile and laugh as the fairground ride goes around and around! Linda and myself spent a good few minutes shooting this ride.

I combined a long exposure and flash to capture the action and hoped to get a glimpse of a child’s smile. I think I was lucky to get this one!
