You can’t say you like technology and dance or Bauhaus and not like looking at the rides at the New York State Fair as you wander among them as they gyrate in the night. Before JG taught me how to use the manual setting on my cheap’ish digital camera, I would have shot this dancing beast in automatic. The resulting image would have been an ecsatatic blur of blasting light, missing the discrete and wild movement of the lit machine parts that constitute this ride at the New York State Fair.  Dance you monster to my soft song!

    nice but needs smellovison with the wafting of slightly burnt caramel corn and an undercurrent of cotton candy for the full effect.
