Piece description from the artist
In the beginning of each season I create a little photography bucket list. I use the notebook in my phone to write them all down. This photo was on that bucket list! I knew what I wanted to create with the Ferris Wheel, since I was planning it for a few months. When I was shooting it with the angle that I wanted I liked it, but didn't love it. We were walking around and we came to the swings. I was watching the swings and knew that it would look really cool as a long exposure shot. They were spinning at different times, I remember sitting there talking out loud trying to tell the Ferris Wheel to start spinning. This was the one and only shot that I could get where for 4 seconds they were both working at the same time.I celebrated with fried Oreos!
