La Grande Roue de paris - Jardin Des Tuileries

A lookup of the big Ferris wheel of Paris at the amusement park at the Garden Des Tuileries at dusk. I was fascinated by the juxtaposition of the wheel and swing and the border of the classic Paris rooftops. Because of the perspective the spinning swing soars into the air when the image is turned 90 degrees, conveying the sense of this in real life. In landscape the swing teeters at 45 degrees as though it's falling over.
