It's all in the detail

My last shot of the merry-go-round shows a little of the fine detailing that makes it so splendidly colourful. As well as the galloping horses you've already seen, intricately carved, painted and gilded fripperies, tiny mirrored cut-glass plaques, shadow lettering and lots of lightbulbs combine with flat painted areas to make a wonderful spectacle. It's nearly the end of the season and soon the splendour of the merry-go-round will be dismantled and stored away until next year.
