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

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.

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