This place has been the backdrop for precious instants in the time log of my life. Amongst them, the last time we were all together in California when I road this Ferris wheel with you. That was 2012. There have been summers and visits since, but this iconic view always reminds me of that trip with the entire family. This photo, patiently crafted with subtle monochrom shadings, is a far cry from the pictures of that day. Those are bright carnie colored snapshots of Pacific Park thrills chased down in the fleeting fervor that the moment might pass. And while this is a photograph I will share amongst my community of photographers, it is the latter, all these years later, that tugs at my heart.
