Setting up

September 18, 2012

The travelling carnival/circus — the kind that sets up in the parking lot of your local mall —  has always fascinated me. Flatbed trucks move the tilt-a-whirls, the bumper cars and the carousels from town to town all summer long (at least in my part of the world). But the interesting detail of this subculture — this nomadic group — is not how they set up their amusements and their food carts. For me it’s the residential trailer villages that are behind the scenes at these events. Because if you wander around a bit you will see pots of flowers, colourful awnings, and folding chairs and tables that make this place — even for a short amount of time — home.

    Fascinating how you make a commonplace scene so interesting. Great composition – with the colors popping out in the grey rainy scene. Reflections on the ground are awesome too.
