I live around the corner from Luna Park here in Melbourne, so I am always driving or walking past from day to day.
It seems so incongruous that from behind buildings and flats, amusement rides such as “Coney Tower” peak up in to the sky.
It’s fantasy meets reality – literally.
The seats on this ride climb up and down at fluctuating speeds, carrying with them the eagerness of youthful exuberance and adult trepidation.
When will it drop?
Should the rider be exhilarated or full of trepidation or both?
For me the little girls face staring straight at the camera says it all.
Could the process of daring to dream be better represented than by the Coney Tower ride?
I’m not sure it could.
Not for me anyway.

I hope you enjoy the moment.
Because ultimately moments make up the patchwork of your life.
