blue sky and ferris wheel



























here she is! I rode my bike through the fair yesterday hoping to get a photo of her standing against the sky. I was extra pleased to find the evening light helping me take this picture too.

Wonderful shot of this ferris wheel. Did you know the Ferris Wheel was America's answer to the Eiffel Tower at their respective international expos? I know, it amazes me too.

Hee, I firstly read that as I rode my bike through the air yesterday and I could almost imagine it, looking at your beautiful photo. Have a lovely weekend, Lily!

Great perspective. It shows the wheel in a most lofty way. I hadn't visited your blog in a while and was very pleased to see the photo of the Block Island lighthouse, the one that had to be moved away from the rise's edge for fear that it would tumble into the water. The lighthouse on the island's other end is a sister lighthouse to the one on Plum Island. It was nice to be able to go up into it when we were there ten or so years ago.
