This looks very familiar. Maybe the same one I seen over Long Beach CA. How was the ride?

I really like your variety of shots, very good composition and good use of mono.

Of all the photos I've seen of these things, I've NEVER seen the inside of the "gondola" (if that's what it's called ). How did you manage a ride?
