Merry-go-round, Roma, Italy 2009 by Douglas Stockdale
As I prepare to return to Rome again, one of the images from the week before that I captured in the late afternoon was this Merry-go-round (I don’t know the Italian name for this), which still haunts my memory. I have also tweaked this in a Black & White version, and I am not sure which version works the best for me. There are the expectant, but empty chairs, and no children hanging on the horses or waiting patiently for their turn to ride. Everything is in place. The image and this place has a bit of saddness to it.
I know where this Merry-go-round is, so I may try to work on this composition and explore these feelings again later next week.
Best regards, Douglas
