Friday Feature: Ferris wheel photography

Since I joined deviantART, I've been brainstorming random photo ideas to search for on the site. One of my recent brainstorms was Ferris wheels. They are such a neat structure to photograph. I thought I'd see what I could find on Etsy, too. Enjoy!

  1. There's something special about ferris wheels! I love the one at sunset!

  2. Wonderful images! I really enjoy going to the carnivals to photograph the various rides and signage. And of course some of that carnival food. Visiting from Blogging Buddies Team

  3. Lovely shots. I once went on a double ferris wheel at the North Carolina State Fair. I was petrified.

  4. So cool! I haven't even seem a Ferris wheel in over a year.

  5. I love ferris wheel photos! These are all really great.

  6. great idea. Ferris wheels are so pretty, esp. at night. I like the one that looks like a drawing, from the Santa Cruz boardwalk. {:-D

  7. Awesome! Haven't ridden an ferris wheel in a "month of Sundays!"

  8. I ride the Mickey ferris wheel at California Adventure in Disneyland every year! :) I love that second photo!

  9. What great shares! Love these images! And I guess I knew that people sell prints on Etsy. That could be another venue...but wow, I'm on like 27 different sites. LOL... But, today's post is just great!

    1. Yep, you can definitely sell photography prints on Etsy. You didn't need to know that, right? :) I know that you've got a lot on your plate these days, but it might be something to consider in the future.

  10. I love photos of ferris wheels they are so cool. I don't like riding them so much, but they are fun to watch.

  11. I have always loved photos of ferris wheels.. they are just. so. cool.
    But, if it is a windy day - you won't catch me on one! lol!

  12. I think Ferris Wheels are such fun to look at in photographs. I became afraid to ride them when I took my young daughter on one and there was not much protection holding us in. I kept my hand over one of her hands on the bar.
    There is an interesting story about the origin of the Ferris Wheel in the book Devil in the White City.

  13. Great ferris wheel images! My favorite one is the Nostalgique one.
