Merry-Go-Round

(50mm, f/14, 1/40, ISO 100)

When I read the latest challenge I knew just where I was going to go to get a motion shot...the park. For this picture I hopped on the merry-go-round with my little one and started snapping away with a slow shutter speed. It was a bit tricky because I was shooting in manual and we kept going in and out of the shade. Did I mention I got sick? No idea how kids find joy in such torture devices :).
