Circus Night

Circus Night

Probably the scariest ride of Budapest Amusement Park. This thing rotates around in all directions several times turning you upside down. Well, it would probably be nifty to try it out, but not for my stomach which would rather throw itself up before to stay out of that! Watching it was interesting, though - and from the "crowd" on it, I guess I wasn't alone with this thought!

It is exceptionally interesting to watch these at dusk and night with all the lights, from times to times it's worth to see, and it's also interesting to photograph it. One has to wait for a good composition which is stationary enough to capture, or moves at a good speed to give a nice blur effect. With this I sided with the first approach, however a falling leaf on the right got to indicate it well that this was indeed long exposure (1/4 sec or so, I don't remember).
