18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest The American Experience
The merry-go-round of the fishbowl in New York city

A merry-go-round is a fascinating thing. It makes us to travel on top of horses, fairies and other fantastic animals. It revives on us memories of youth and unique dreams, while we are turning and turning on a landscape that changes as we move. In America, carrousels as they are also known turn counterclockwise, as if they took us back in time. The SeaGlass Carousel is a fish-themed carousel in the Southern part of Manhattan Island in New York City that give us the possibility of an immersion in the sea, with its colorful fishes and fantasies. Big and small fishes of different forms bright red, yellow, gray, and green colors go up and down on the merry-go-round carrying them in their bosom.
