Good catch, Nikki! I sure like the symmetry and colors. The red cars on the Ferris Wheel look great against the fine blue skies.

It would also be fun to see this as a twilight or night shot.

Really like the contrast between the circular shape of the ferris wheel and the vertical background buildings. Excellent POV, colors and clarity!!

Did you ride the ferris wheel? We did many years ago. Long way up.:)
