Default Wheels but Not Tires -- Carousel

This is my archive shot for the challenge. This is the Jantzen Beach Carousel located at the Jantzen Beach Mall a few miles North of Portland. A few decades back, there was an amusement park at this location (an island on the Columbia River). All that is left of the park is the Carousel which has been beautifully restored.
Scanned 35mm negative.

That's a beautifully crisp scan of a beautifully detailed shot, Cal. My negacans were never that good.

I love old carousels. Really good photo. I'm hoping to shoot one this afternoon in Little Rock.

Scanned with a Minolta Dimage Scan Dual III negative/slide scanner. This model and the Scan Dual IV were dropped some time after Minolta merged with Konica.

Cal,
As others noted the quality of the scan is superb. A pity Minolta dropped this product line.
