Default Puppet Master

Hello all. Not sure why this one catches my eye. I cant help thinking that they are all being controled by the unseen Puppet Master. What do you think?

Puppet Master...reminds me of some of the Chiller-Thriller 'B' movies of the '50's.

Great shot of a carnival ride. I've never seen that angle...quite different, original.

I can't handle carnival rides anymore..they make me and !

Red River Ex ?

It's a fun photo but you are missing a main subject or focal point and in the middle you have riders blocked so a change of composition would have been better. Also cropping a head in half makes for a very uncomfortable shot.

If you had been able to shoot from further right or possibly a bit later in the rotation (or earlier for that fact) it would have worked out better.

Looking at it, possibly going for a shot of the riders at the back would have also been a nice one.

I agree mark but it would be half a head or half a body Tough shot to crop, but agree it doesnt have the focal point you speak of.

It is a small world...I'm amazed sometimes. I used to live in Fort Garry, not too far from Richmond West, in the Chancellor Drive area...back in the '70's when it was first built.

How old are you and what high school did you attend. I went out with a few girls from FRC in the 80s and early 90s

I'm 60...I went to Churchill High and went out with girls from John Taylor, Dakota and a few from Vincent Massey. ..that was back, quite a number of years ago. Married a girl who graduated from VMC.
