Jacqui our Photographer of the Month shares her beautiful pictures of French carousels. ‘It is not unusual to see a carousel in most towns and villages in France and in Spain too’.
‘Profiter de la balade’ (If you think this is incorrect, please leave me a comment with the phrase you think is correct, and why)…but for now, Enjoy the ride.
The horses and other animals are always a little different to the one you see in the village before.
Some have mermaids and submarines, some keep to the traditional horses. I think Carousels are moving sculptures.
I have always loved the music and the children going around and up and down.
Such a beautiful thing to enjoy in your childhood…
They appear almost magical at night.
These photographs reminded me on a scene in the Audrey Hepburn/Cary Grant film ‘Charade’. At about 1:50 you hear the music. Sorry it is not in English, but you could hire the movie. But beware this clip is a A SPOILER.
….but of course Carousels are all over Pinterest!
