Photo of the day: night carnival

Night carnival, 35mm negative

Carnivals are interesting places to make photographs. They are mini towns that appear seemingly overnight. Full of rides, games, hucksters and those that want to be seen. It was just past nightfall, and the rides were silent, waiting for the crowds to appear. This image was made from my window many years ago. Like a fleeting carnival, this parking lot no longer exists. It is now a hotel and conference center. Image made with a tripod and shutter release, timed exposure on Tri-X film.
