Paris is filled with carousels throughout the city. This one is found outside of Hotel de Ville in the Marais. I named this one Martiene’s carousel for a sweet little girl I knew in Paris who loved riding it!

I have been to NYC several times but never had a chance to visit Bryant Park. I stopped here for a few minutes on my last trip to NYC and fell in love. Its so peaceful and beautiful. I could sit here for hours. I love that they have movies in the park and yoga here. If I lived in NYC this would be my place. My Aunt says she comes here in the morning to read the newspaper in the summer.
My eye immediately was drawn to the beautiful carousel in a blue green color with large butterflies. It blends in to the greenery of the park but the gold lights catch your eye.
I grew up loving carousels because my grandmother had a carousel horse in her living room. On my trip to Europe this summer carousels filled Spain and France. I started a series of carousels during my travels. Here are a few of my favorites from Barcelona, Montpelier, and Paris. All can be purchased on my website click on the photo for the direct link to my etsy shop.

If you are looking for pieces of Art to decorate a young boy’s room here are a few suggestions. I have had several people buy these two pieces over the summer and I have gotten great reviews! These work great individually or as a set. Each are available as prints or 12×12 photographs on canvas. This makes them easy to hang on the wall with just one nail.
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.
