The Magic of the Cities.

Zen promotes the rediscovery of the obvious, which is so often lost in its familiarity and simplicity. It sees the miraculous in the common and magic in our everyday surroundings. When we are not rushed, and our minds are unclouded by conceptualizations, a veil will sometimes drop, introducing the viewer to a world unseen since childhood. ~ John Greer

I like your black and white Carraol. I almost gave up on finding the ferris wheel and then there is is. LOL

I just happened to see the lady in red below and the backs of her legs takes me way back in time to World War II when all women wore hose with seams down the back.

That seam was so important and hose were so scarce that some ladies actually painted a line down the middle of the back of their legs to make it appear like she was wearing hard to get hose.
