Photos of the Week

2009-09-25 14

When was the last time you visited the bearded lady or munched on cotton candy and corndogs at the same time? Let’s reminisce about good times in the carnival!

flashback

Although traveling caravans of clowns, sideshow folk and a collection of interesting animals parking right at your backyard are rare nowadays, it sure does bring back childhood memories or at the very least, scenes from movies. Carnivals and amusement parks whether big or small are always an interesting sight to behold. There’s no shortage of color as each balloon, toy and booth are speckled with the whole rainbow of hues.

In Photos of the Week, we’re going to take a look at the backbone of these fairs: the rides! rollercoasters, carousels and ferris wheels are just screaming to be photographed in all their glory. We checked out the Photos page for some cool finds and here’s what we came up with! Enjoy and plese do visit a carnival near you today!

    The World According to Herr Willie – Pripyat, the Last City of the CCCP (Pt.1)

    When I went to the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone I was deeply impressed by Pripyat. The city was home to most of the workers of the nuclear power plant and evacuated two days after the disaster. Now it's a larger than life museum about the Soviet Union. It is the last city of the CCCP.
