It was spring cleaning files time yesterday and I came across this in my records for culling. Taken earlier this year.

I was about to throw it out when I thought about how incredible it was. To me anyway. The technology to get this shot was beyond imagining when I started photography. It took my breath away.

This looks like a carnival ride similar to the Rock-O-Plane I recall from early '50s, but which didn't have the fancy colored lights -- only ground-based white floods.  Also, the two riders were belted inside steel capsules resembling cockpits, one each on ends of two long, opposing arms.

This machine looks much more "exhilarating."
