[Photo Journal/A-Z Photo Story Challenge] C is for Carnivale

Hello. Fats here.

It’s Tuesday! Time for Frizztext’s A-Z Photo Story Challenge. Letter this week is C so I am sharing a few shots I took when I went to San Diego County Fair a few weeks ago. I like going to the fair. It pulls you in and you are transported to a world where the only things you worry about are food, rides, and games.
(I had the funnel cake and the chocolate-covered bacon.)

A Boat

O beautiful
was the werewolf
in his evil forest.
We took him
to the carnival
and he started
crying
when he saw
the Ferris wheel.
Electric
green and red tears
flowed down
his furry cheeks.
He looked
like a boat
out on the dark
water.

“Life is filled with so many exciting twists and turns. Hop off the straight and narrow whenever you can and take the winding paths. Experience the exhilaration of the view from the edge. Because the moments spent there, that take your breath away, are what make you feel truly alive.”

“You must live in the present, launch yourself on every wave, find your eternity in each moment. Fools stand on their island of opportunities and look toward another land. There is no other land; there is no other life but this.”

— Henry David Thoreau

“Let everything happen to you
Beauty and terror
Just keep going
No feeling is final.”

— Rainer Maria Rilke

  1. nice, surprising unorthodox Werwolf poem:
    “…the werewolf in his evil forest:
    We took him to the carnival
    and he started crying
    when he saw the Ferris wheel…”

  2. I’m not a fan of rides but can admire people who do and have no fear.
    Nice entry ….
