The Sleeping Funfair

...or Kirmes, as we call it here, in the wee hours of the morning. (Well, not that wee, but around 9 o'clock.)

When they are asleep these "funfairs" have nothing "to say"! It's quite different when everything is in movement and moreover when the lights are on!

@Japanalia: It certainly is, but I think these quiet fun parks are temporary architecture taken out of their context. I like this contrast to the evening, when things are getting wilder.

Wee hours of morning haha 9'oclock? :) How do you get your images so large, it looks good ! I'm so sure this looks so alive in the night with the lights on. I like your pov and the framing.

@Abena: I've never been an early bird. Wait until the really big fun fair will happen in summer!
Why it is so big: it's the joy of a wide-angle lens. :-)
