Project Blue: Take Two - At the Fair


I missed Take One of Anna's latest photo/color project but I made it for Take Two. During Project Green I got so confused I never knew what Take was coming or going but this time I'm going to try to be consistent and sequential - take that math!

I took this at a small local street fair. Guess what!? It's the Scooter Ride! Yes! Yes! It Is!

Personally I thought it was the bumper cars but ...

If you don't visit ANNA you should. Even when between projects her place is a treat for the eyes. During one of her projects it is an absolute feast of talented photographers.

Melli said...

I NEVER would have guessed that to be the scooter ride! LOL! (ya know... you can CATCH up with Take 1 if ya want to!)

Gattina said...

Fortunately it's written on ! otherwise I would say the same as Melli !

Very COOL blue!

I don't worry about keeping up with the 'TAKES' in these projects! I just post my pics as I want to! lol- I usually posts lots- not just one for each 'Take!' But that's just me being different!

:) Thanks for visiting me!

I think I'm gonna like checking out your blog, too!

...Not right now, tho! I have house keeping stuff to do ! ;(

What exactly is a scooter ride?

tt said...

Wow! Anna's photography is fabulous.
So,,you gonna ride that scooter???

dot said...

Nice scooter shot! No way would I get on. lol

Ivanhoe said...

That sounds like fun project. I'll see what blue stuff is around me as Anna said keep looking for blue. There my be a take 3...

Dianne said...

thanks Raven! - I did a little fishbowl effect on it and I liked the way it looked.

melli - I guess I could LOL I'm just a bit OCD ;)

gattina - the odd thing is that the ride had nothing to do with scooters! it was just bumper cars.

junie - I love people who are different and don't play by the rules :)
happy housekeeping!

anndi - it's bumper cars! no one there could tell me why it was called scooter. it bugged me LOL

tt - Anna is the best. she has a thing for angles and looking up which I just love. I learn something from all her photos and I love her projects, so many talented people join in. Plus it makes you suddenly notice color everywhere! and NO WAY was I gonna ride LOL

dot - I'm with you! It was just bumper cars but the simple act of getting in and out of them would have killed me :)

Dianne said...

ivanhoe - these projects go on for a while so definitely look for some blue. it's fun! :)

Shelly said...

Oooo...cool blue, love the way you shopped it.

Jo said...

Ooo, I love that photo! It makes me want to hop on in & scoot...but if it spins I'll throw up & for some reason that ruins it for everyone LOL

somitra said...

it seems like i am looking through a lens :) nicely capped

Dianne said...

thanks shelly :) I liked the added 'fullness'

jo - I would sit with you and bring a designer barf bag :)
it was just bumper cars although the older kids are road rage in training!!

somitra - thank you so much!

Champ Townboy said...

juliana said...

Is the scooter different from the bumper cars? Great blue! :D

Anonymous said...

Dianne said...

thanks champ townboy!

julianna - that's what I thought :)

LOL Leighann! Don't ya hate when that happens

teach - I thought a scooter should be different from bumper cars but this one wasn't. Now I'm wondering what a Scooter ride would be LOL

CG - LOL!! blogger troubles today? it seems to be going around.

Jay said...

Great picture!

I used to love the bumper cars. But, I don't ride them cause the collisions hurt my back. :-(

But, I would love a scooter! That would be fun.

Tammy said...

I didn't have a clue what that was until you said it....I feel a little silly for not knowing.

Carletta said...

Oh those fall carnival days when I was young! Thanks for memories with a really wonderful shot! I think you get the award for "biggest blue"

Mishelle Lane Photography said...

Love. This. Much.

June said...

It's been a long time since I've seen these...thanks for the memory! And blue too :-)

photowannabe said...

Perfect and fun choice for project blue. glad you are joining Project Blue.

Odat said...

So did ya Scoot? or Bump?

Great pic!!!

Peace

Dianne said...

Jay - yeah my back is not exactly bumper ready either :)

tammy - when I first stood there I didn't know what it was so don't feel silly :)

carletta - thanks so much!! we have tons of these around here all year long - fairs and carnivals and clam fests and on and on - great place for photos

mishelle - thank you!!

awwww thanks june! - it is a vintage ride :)

photowannabe - thanks - I'm glad I joined too! anna's projects are always a huge success

odat - You bet - I scooted and I bumped, I just didn't go on the rides ;)

Lacey Lichi said...

Love the photo and nice use of effects! I get the "scooter" thing. They want to make it sound nicer and not so violent. Bumper. It sounds abrupt. Scooter. It sounds safe. Silly people! Tomato, tomoto- it's the SAME THING!

Dianne said...

thanks lacey! - and you're right, they're trying to make it sound nicer!!

quilly said...

Great -- very blue --- sign! Welcome to the project!

Dorothy said...

What a terrific photo for Project Blue!! Really, really great!

lynn said...

Great blue photo. I was also going to ask what a scooter ride was, but I see you answered that. I always seem to get the car that won't move!

napaboaniya said...

Scooter as in mini motorcycles? It sure has got a nice shade of blue :P

Matt-Man said...

I would have never known it was a Scooter ride...How could I determine that? Cheers Di!!

Gina said...

I'm not familiar with the scooter ride either but still think this is a great shot and just love the perspective of your pic!! G :)

the walking man said...

What good is a cat if it doesn't catch a rat?

Blue is good, I like blue but a scooter ride Dianne? Is that provided by the "Scooter Store" which will get me my scooter at no cost?

ha ha ha ha ha

Peace

Diane Mandy said...

Awesome photo!

annette said...

Love the crisp colour, very cool pic!! :0)

ellen b said...

What a great find and beautiful blue! The photo is great. Have a great week...

Dianne said...

thank you quilly!

thank you dorothy :)

LOL Lynn - there was a poor kid there who kept getting stuck. He was so frustrated poor thing.

napaboynia - No just plain bumper cars. motorcycles would have made sense. I love the blue too, thanks.

I know matt-man, I know! they really kept it low key

gina - thanks so much!

LOL Mark - but only if you qualify!!

thanks diane m :)

and thanks annette - the fair was right by the beach so the air and the light was as crisp as the blue - it was a great day,

thank you ellen b - and a great week to you too :)

Michael Manning said...

Minnesotablue said...

My grandaughter wanted me to go on a ride like that with her. I had to refuse, way to afraid of knocking my back out of whack. So Sad!

Rebecca said...

That's neat!

Dianne said...

minnesota - I know!! I hated having to say no too!

thanks rebecca :)
