Disorientation

Loop Ice Carnival 2016-01-16 33

Running low on material but still finding images from the Ice Carnival a couple of weeks ago. This was a strange amusement, apparently a double sphere, the inner and outer connected by these green pins. Someone gets in and then runs like crazy down a track bordered by inflated tubes, trying their best not to fall or go upside down. It's actually a race. There is a second sphere, not shown here, in which another contestant tries to go down and back more quickly.

I don't think there was a prize for the winner but second place got a packet of Dramamine.

It's funny. But I don't think there inside the ball is nice to be.
Lovely photos.

How to transfer into a virus. A nice attempt.

The good thing about running low on material is you give some great pictures a chance. The top one is beautifully composed and quite intriguing. I love your last line too.

It may be a strange thing to say but I rather fancy having a go! Looks fun don't you think Bob :)
