When I set out on my journey to photograph carousels in France this summer I stopped in Spain first. I heard about the amusement park at the top of the hill that was over 100 years old called Tibidado. I took the train, to the bus, and then a cable car high up on the hill to find this amusement park. It wasn’t what I was hoping for because a lot of the rides weren’t in working order. But there was a gem of a carousel.

It seems I am always on the go. Camera in hand and traveling somewhere in the US or abroad. I love to photograph the little things in life. Where ever I may be there are always ways to find me and purchase my work. I have a growing collection of photography for sale on www.etsy.com I live in the Chicago area and sell my work in a handful of stores on Clark Street from Lincoln Park all the way to Andersonville. I am only an email away if you have questions feel free to post on the blog or email me at email@example.com
Every time I am in Paris, I try to leave something undiscovered for my next trip. I knew this year I wanted to do a series of carousels. There are a lot more in Paris than you may think. There are two at the eiffel tower right across from each other! So it begins my series of carousels in the city of lights and Europe. Where is your favorite carousel?
Growing up my grandmother had an antique carousel horse in her living room. As a child, my sister and I used to play on the carousel horse when we went to visit. Now that I am older, when I see a carousel it reminds me of my childhood and puts a smile on my face. Here is a recent carousel photograph from my travels. Stay tuned for more carousels this week!
