Transported in Time…to the Memories of Childhood

Today I’m offering a bit of whimsy…the smell of cotton candy in the air, the magical sounds of a calliope, and the sweet childhood memories of exotic creatures and faraway places..all through the wonder of an old-fashioned carousel.

As time passes and we grow older, the past sometimes grows dim. I wanted to make this image bolder and brighter than my own faded memories of long ago, so after taking this shot at the Swope Park Zoo, I fancied it up a bit with vibrant colors.

I share it here in hopes that you might feel TRANSPORTED to times and places and precious remembrances of your own childhood.
