Rollercoaster


I took this photo in Santa Cruz, California earlier this year. It was near the end of summer and somewhat early in the morning so the rollercoaster near the beach wasn't running and the food stands weren't open.
I was surprised how bright and colorful all the signs and structures ended up in the photos I took. It almost looks like a poster or an advertisement. In case it's not obvious the cutoff sign is for hot dogs.

Canon 20D, 24-85mm 3.5-4.5, AV f11

Hey, that reminds me of my past memories there... back in 1997. Really miss the cool weather there. I ate baked potatoes there, was nice and the hot dog there was very big. The beach was crowded then... I like Santa Clara.

Btw, I have put up my dog's photo at http://anythingpet.blogspot.com/ come and take a look at my dog. Give me yr comment if any.

Thanks and good nite.

I'd have left the "o" in, so it said "Ho" with a wiener next to it :)

Brocco,

Not exactly the look I was going for, but you get points for creativity.

This is a great perspective and the colors are fabulous as well.

Looks fun. I LOVE roller coasters. We don't have any good amusement parks here, but I grew up in Ohio and experienced Cedar Point and King's Island once or twice each summer. As Manda said, one of the only redeeming qualities of Ohio.

Now I feel like finding a rollercoaster, right after midterms that is.

I like the dark sky. Kind of daunting...reminds me why I am afraid of roller coasters!

Blake,
It's interesting how different people have distinctly different reactions to the same photo. I didn't really think the sky looked ominous until you mentioned it.

Thanks for your comment.
