‘Learn to see, and then you’ll know there is no end to the new worlds of our vision.’ — Carlos Castaneda
As mentioned in my previous post we were at Navy Pier for the Chinese Celebration yesterday, but no trip to Navy Pier is complete without a ride on the Ferris Wheel! We were some of the very few braving the cold for a ride…kind-of nice not having to wait in line.
I love photographing Ferris Wheel’s, the angles and curves can make for many interesting and unique perspectives. And I’m lucky enough to live in a city with a great Ferris Wheel right on the lakefront all year round. It’s always fun to shoot the same subject at different times of the year, different times of day and from different vantage points. Funny how a simple subject matter can be seen so many ways.
If you’re interested in seeing other takes on one of our city’s most fun attractions, I posted some summer versions here. I also have a few black and white versions, one of which is in the architectural abstract gallery.
What’s your favorite version? I’d also love to see your take on any Ferris Wheel, post your links in the comments section below!
