This series simply is a view from a ferris wheel.
The concept of La Grande Roue (Big Wheel) in Paris was born during the 1900 World Expo! Like the Eiffel Tower, the temporary installation became institution! In 1900, the first big wheel in Paris was located on the Avenue de Suffren. It was removed in 1937 so that its metal could be recycled for other purposes deemed more helpful then. Pity people then had not recognized that fun is of the utmost importance!
Moving toward the entrance, truly, a large, pink cadillac approached. It reminded me of a song! Bruce Springsteen – “Pink Cadillac” (original)
