Reflections of a fun fair

Last weekend I met up at dusk with my photo group. Albert park in Parramatta, western Sydney, had been turned into a Winter Wonderland Festival with carnival rides and a ice rink and flashing lights and music and a skating show. We went with the aim of getting some dusk/night shots. We had to try to get what we could without using a tripod and that made for a real challenge.

It was a lot of fun. You could tell a lot of people had not ice skated before ;)
Ever on the lookout for a good reflection, I saw carnival lights in a window across the road. I was trying not to shoot cars but I kept these shots...

Edit. I have just linked to James' Weekend Reflections (see his blog on my sidebar).  It's amazing where people find reflections.

Have a good weekend,



  1. Nice evening shots love the movement one.

    1. Thanks Diane..I really wanted my tripod!
