Picture A Day - Oct 23, 2010

So I wanted to experiment a little this morning....something different....which is why I LOVE being mostly caught up on my editing because I don't have to feel guilty about taking some time to work on some personal items just for fun.

This is another image I took on my Santa Monica, CA. Glow Fest excursion (although I didn't really take many pics of the actual Glow Fest even though that was my intention...I just couldn't do much without having a tripod with me)...


But I'm having a hard time coming up with a creative name for this piece....any ideas?????

UPDATE: Thanks to reader, "Warren Baldwin" who suggested this fabulous name - this photo is now called "Rotation".  Thanks Warren!

It's also available for sale in my Etsy shop: http://www.etsy.com/shop/AveryJamesPhoto?ref=top_trail

i took a similar pic of this during the day...how about calling this 'magic'? things take on a whole different look and meaning when its dark...i still remember the original ferris wheel, kinda sad that it got carted away to Oklahoma of all places.

This reminds me of the musical Carousel for some reason. First thing i thought of.

Jen said...

I love it! It has such an urban look in the dark.

I'm not quite sure of what to name it but it does look magical.

The name 'purple haze' came to mind immediately :)

I told my daughter the other day I had been on a ferris wheel but now I cant remember if I actually have.
Lovely pic.

Thanks for becomming my newest follower. I love your picture of the ferris wheel, I have ridden one this summer in Colorado Springs. The chairs remind me of lanterns.

How about naming it exactly what it is: Glow Fest?
