A street fair carney gives in to fatigue surrounded by relentless amusement.
ah, wretched excess! I love the guy going by the mouth, perhaps to be swallowed up. the lack of a crowd gives this a kind of "twilight zone" quality

What a bunch of popping colors - love the guy & the Exit sign is so clever in your compo - yours, maybe, with the script achieved ? Congrats and now : Fiesta for you ! ;)

cette image pétille de couleurs et de gaité et pourtant personne ne semble vraiment s'amuser..

A picture full of color and life! I miss the presence of children!

@Fonts: You're right. There was so much "fun" (and heat) not that many came. Perhaps he was in charge of the "bad" ride.
Great funny colors and a good scene, well seen ! Phil.

What an explotion of colors..... Wonderful.... As a very dear person to me used to say: If it ain't too much it's not enough!!!! You can always Exit if it gets too much.

More colours than a paint store has to offer, is he guarding the exit.

Poor guy does look worn out but surrounded by such vibrant colors

We're not here for fun ! It should be fun ! An image of the western world today ... Excessive images, games, continual zapping ...

This is a great image-moment and a very suitably vibrant image, too !
30 Mar 2010 7:15pm
