as always ronald wonderful capture!!! #52333

Patricia Marroquin August 13, 2003

I agree, great shot, Ronald! Funny title too! :-) #164725

Ronald Balthazor August 13, 2003

Thank you so much, Sharon and Patricia. When I set-up for this shot I had no idea how the ride worked. Once it started moving I couldn't believe people paid money to do this to themselves. I took one shot and scurried. I have a weak stomach and did not want to see what came done the exit ramp. #164747

Cathy Barrows August 13, 2003

great shot...i love the broken pieces of light shooting out at different angles. #164756

Ronald Balthazor August 13, 2003

Thank you, Cathy. The individual pods in which the "people" rode had headlights on them. So as the pod gyrated in 2,567,822 different directions the headlight would send beams all over the Fairgrounds. They were so bright I thought they would ruin the shot. #164771
