Wheel of Fortune

Ferris wheels as tourist attractions are becoming a common site in many cities around the world . This is a reflection of the one in downtown Atlanta, the distortions in the reflective glass making it look quite surrreal. Fortunately I caught the light at the right time!

Sometimes the simplest looking of shots are the most difficult to take. Not only was it -15c (5F), I was up to my knees in snow, and was also closer to the building than I would have liked. This was making it diffuclt for me to get the right Continue reading
