I should probably tell you that I really don’t like carnival rides. AT ALL. EVER!
I prefer my thrills on ground level. Oh and securely anchored into thus ground. Carnival rides are neither. I was needless to say terrified that a tiny being so close to my heart was riding these rides. My rule is that if you see it next to you on I-85 that afternoon then you should not get on it later that night. I’m just saying…… eeekkkk
This darling child is my nephew. It is extremely hard to take photos of him because he normally won’t let me get out of arms reach. Thankfully for me he had so many things to distract him that he didn’t mind leaving me in the dust a few times. I had a unbelievably hard time getting a variety of shots. Being the nervous two year old that he is, he didn’t want to ride many of these rides. I knew I taught him something. He literally rode the same four rides over and over and over again. Oh and then there is this baby in my belly. They wouldn’t even let me ride if I could. So overall I felt like this shoot was less than successful.
I have come to realize that it is very hard to take photos of children that have a connection with you personally. On one hand they are more comfortable with you but on the other they feel so comfortable with you its challenging to take a step back and be a by stander. They most of the time view you as entertainment or as someone who tells them what to do. In this case I am both. This is a role that normally I love. Except when I need to blend into the background and am trying to be sneaky, very, very sneaky.
