The Adelaide Eye, as we called it.. Australia. A not so giant ferris wheel, located across the road from our apartment in Glenelg, where we stayed over the weekend.

I’ve always wanted to capture a ferris wheel, never had the chance to do it until this moment.

Desaturated this one and added a texture from www.deviantart.com to achieve a more vintage look. Reminds me of summers gone past from my childhood.

    this is where i was when i broke my camera, I saw this and really really wanted to do something with it so i put it off to the next day, but by then it was too late.
    very well shot Andrew, i like the texture you’ve added.

  • Ahh I bet you’re glad that’s all done and dusted now mate. You’re back with twice the hit! Thanks for the great feedback, I’m glad you like it!
