Italian Festival 4 – Sky Diver

Sky diver!

I couldn’t do anything about the moiré patterns, but if you click the image, you can see a larger version of the photo that is hopefully a little bit cleaner.

Anyway. This is the Sky Diver!


It’s like a Ferris Wheel on acid. The capsules, which are anchored to the wheel by axles at the front and back, flip over and around as the wheel turns. Whee!

  1. These are awesome!! I love the first one especially! Did you use a slow shutter speed? It looks like a target! Nice work 🙂

    • Yeah! Four seconds, which is the slowest my camera can go. These are a lot of fun to make, ‘though I could do without the crowds tripping over my tripod and me. 😉 Thank you!
