Signs of Summer - The Carnival
Everybody loves a carnival. As summer was off to an official start, I found myself back in my hometown for a few days. On the last afternoon of its run, I made time to check out the carnival that I always went to when I was younger. To my delight, many of the old, familiar rides and activities from my teenage years were still in working order- only the ticket prices have changed.
It was eerily quiet before the bustling rush of excited visitors would arrived in another couple of hours.
The kitsch and intense colors from the carnival continue to have an influence in my work.
