Photographer's Note

This shot was taken at the Foire du Trone, which has been occuring in Paris for over 1000 years. It is also the same carnival where Amélie goes, in the film "Le Fabuleux Destin d'Amélie Poulain", to find Nino who is working in this "ghost train" ride.

Compared to the film, I do not think this is the exact same ride since I assume they change from year to year, but it does have the same name and is in the same location. Also in the film, Amélie went there on a Wednesday and there was hardly any other people, I went on a Sunday and as you can tell there were lots of people. I decided to leave them in the shot because I think they help to demonstrate the diverse cultures here in Paris.

Postprocessing: I cloned out a wire that was running across the ferris wheel and cloned out a pole that was sticking up behind the ride.
