Fairground Innocence by Andrew Paranavitana

Currently unavailable for purchase

This is the ferris wheel of Luna Park, Melbourne. (Australia). I shot this through the main gates, as the park was closed to the public. It reminded me of when I used to go as a child, there was really nothing more exciting than a theme park, carnival or anything that had show bags to take home!

Life was so simple then.

This one is dedicated to two of my best friend’s new addition to the family: Sienna Antoinette Leonard. She’s a cool kid :)
