Just a quick post today, with a photograph I took when The Significant Other and I visit the Old Town Fair that the city has organized on Nuremberg’s Central Market, as kind of compensation for the two big city fairs that had to be cancelled due to Covid this year. Does it then make sense to still have fair with a ferris wheel, a rollercoaster, an auto scooter and a carousel when cases are still raising with all the people returning from vacation? I’m not sure, but it sure was fun. Fully masked though….
I brought my new Fuji to capture the scenes of the colorful fair. And I took tons of images. In a particular magic moment, The Significant Other and I rode the Ferris Wheel and where just stopped way on top, when the setting sun appeared behind the clouds and bathed the scene on the Central Market in a red glow. But this is for another post, once I edited the images.
This one was taken with the X-Pro1 and the 23mm F/2 lens. Image specs 1/30 sec @ f/4 and ISO 200. Slow enough shutter speed to capture the movement of the carousel, but fast enough to still freeze the motion blurred silhouettes of the riders (The Significant Other among them).
Have a great Wednesday!
