F is for Ferris Wheel

It's "ABC Wednesday" again and this week's topic starts with the letter "F". These ferris wheel photos were taken a few months ago at two different county fairs. If you didn't know, the ferris wheel was first designed by George Ferris, Jr. for the 1893 World's Fair in Chicago to rival the Eiffel Tower specifically created for the 1889 World's Fair in Paris.

Here are links to other "ABC Wednesday" participants.

Another Fun, Fab, Foto For 'F'.

The second shot is great, with the sun glinting off the frame work, and the angle is well thought out.

We went to the Marin County Fair two years ago. It was just one of those special days. Your picture made me reflect on that, thanks.

Thanks all for your comments. Now we'll have to start thinking about next week's. :)

Digital Flower, how did you know that one of the ferris wheels was from the Marin County Fair? Very perceptive!

Great idea for F. I tried to take a picture of a ferris wheel but it was dark and it wasn't running at the time.
