17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest The American Experience
Hold on Tight...this is going to be a smooth ride.

As I hear more and more merry go rounds are being decommissioned, I wanted to capture a moment of my child riding one. She may not have this opportunity with her own children someday. So when visiting my hometown we took a whirl on the merry go round. She does not care for carnival rides of any kind but she very kindly humored me. She is biting her lip in concentration to not fall off the slippery saddle from the painted horse.
