carousels around the world photo gallery


I have a fondness for merry-go-rounds.  As I have traveled the world, I have seen and photographed many different styles.  I asked my fellow travel writers, photographers, and bloggers to share here a favorite picture they have snapped of a carousel.  More . . .

The carousel depicted here is the Wonder-Go Round at Children’s Fairyland in Oakland, California.  The fanciful mounts are characters from “Alice in Wonderland.”

take a peaceful swim with a turtle


Swim along with this turtle through the Great Barrier Reef off the coast of Australia.  The turtle's-eye-view lasts until he whacks the camera off his back and sails away alone.

More underwater photography.
