This long-exposure photo of a carousel in motion gives us a delightful, and somewhat ghostly, image of circling lights. I love how the lights come together to form rings of light around the center column of lights. Mesmerizing!
Merry go Rounds make for great nighttime photos with all the lights and motion. When I was taking these photos people kept walking in front of the camera then they would realize I was taking a photo and quickly run to get out of the way. Didn’t matter to much though because with the long exposure they became little more that blurs on the photo!
“As much as thinking this upsets me, I’m starting to see that I need the merry-go-round much more than it needs me, and in the end my choice is to hop back on or get left in the dust.” ~ Wendelin Van Draanen
My Mission: connecting with our Inner Light in delightful, inspiring ways
For me, creating mandalas is more than just coloring pretty patterns in a circle. I do it because my spiritual evolution and creativity require it of me. My mandala designs come about within an active meditative state, connected with my higher self, my spiritual guides and nature spirits.
Together, we bring into form, mandala art the allows me to re-connect with my own inner peace and joy, letting me explore and expand my own creative spirit to however far and in whatever direction I want to take it.
As part of my own spiritual journey, I encourage, and hopefully inspire, others to explore their own creativity, to help them re-connect with their own inner peace and joy. As a means to that end, I make all of my mandalas available for people to color. Why should I have all the fun?
