Bushnell Park Carousel

This post originally ran on August 21, 2008

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.
