Our Beautiful World Week 7 ~ Wonder

is a place where you could share photographs taken by you from your part of the world

We have a new word prompt every Sunday

this week is chosen by Shahrul


If you have been to Paris, you'll never miss the carousel by the Eiffel

I believe many of us have font memories with carousel

it makes me WONDER

how much our parents spent on carousel tickets when we were young

I know how much I spent on carousel tickets just to see the smile on those little faces of my kids

Carousel also reminded me as a little kid

how we find WONDER in the most ordinary thing

the carefree joy of riding on a carousel

can't help but WONDER

is the feel of innocence all pouring down on us whenever we see those pretty painted horses?

the music, the twinkling lights and all the childhood WONDER

all happened on a carousel

the first photo was edited using photoshop elements 10
I added a scratch texture found on the internet

Join us this week at

What a wonder-ful post Kirsty! And so recognizable too :) Yes, lots of tickets bought here too. We have one by the sea here. And you know, I have to admit I can't remember seeing one near the eifel tower... How come I totally missed it? Lol! Must have been that I wasn't a kid and didn't have a kid at that time.
You all have such wonderful posts and photos, I had some trouble coming up with something this week. Beautiful shots Kirsty!

Hugs and happy week! xx Wendy

I still love carousels, even after all these years. You got great shots. I love the way you showed the little scenes that are painted around the top of the carousel. Those are great details to capture. said...

What a marvelous post. yes Carrousels hold fond memories for me too, my parents used to take me and then as a teenager I just brought myself and then as a parent I followed in their footsteps. And my dear how the times had changed from when I used to ride them at .35 cents!!!

How magical and beautiful your pictures and words are. I too could ride on these anywhere. My daughter hopes to visit Paris one day and I'm sure she would love to ride on it. Thanks for sharing.
