Happy memories come swiftly. The music, the corn dogs, the candy floss and the clowns emerge from the carnival tents in my mind. Giggling toddlers are held tight atop the ferris wheel. Giddy girls flirt with the boys who try to win the big stuffed bears...and maybe their girls' hearts too. Dripping ice-cream cones and teacup rides all around!
In trying to bring the viewer to the past, I used a treatment in processing that yellowed up the colours just enough. The appearance of an old photograph was my reward.
