Bushnell Park Carousel

This is the historic Bushnell Park Carousel in downtown Hartford CT.  It contains 36 jumper horses, 12 stander horses and two chariots.  I had to sign my life away to take the shots I did as they are very protective about commerical use or people selling the photos of the carousel.  I shot this with an extremely low shutter speed just for a cool effect and keep the folks riding anonymous.

For you camera freaks it was shot handheld at 1/4 second at f16 at ISO 800.
