Can you hear the music? When I see this photo for some reason I can hear the music that they always play on this type of carousel. Also, somehow it reminds of one of those movies with flash backs into the past. I look at it and expect it to suddenly start moving, with kids seating on it and their mamas watching over, and of course something terrible will happen any second, just wait… it is coming.
So does anyone know where I took this photo? There are some clues in it.

Sorry, clues to subtle for us!
No idea but a great image….nostalga
Marvelous Image. Many Memories!
There is one like it in the Danbury Mall in Connecticut, after they built the mall on the old fairgrounds many years ago and kept the carousel..so I would have to say it is in a mall somewhere…..
Good guess, but there is no mall near by to this one, at least none that are visible
First of all, beautiful shot! Can’t resist the temptation, so I googled “giant carousel inside glass walls” and I found Jane’s Carousel. Pretty smart to be shooting with Brooklyn bridge behind you 🙂 Or I am completely off the mark?
yep, your investigative powers are strong. that’s the one. 🙂
Ciao, great pic, l also thought of a shopping mall, pity it’s not used, we have one every winter market in Verona, Italy….kids , music, outdoors in the piazza an all!
I saw one similar to this at a sea port on Long Island, but I also suspect it is closer to NYC?
yes, this is right in NYC, on the Brooklyn side of the East river. You can see refelction of the Brooklyn Bridge and a bit of Manhattan bridge.
P.S. Wonderful photo! Excellent color and capture of lights in the background! I will second guess, San Fran?
Nope, not San Fran, Fluffyphoton got it right.
This is a cool shot Dmitrii! 🙂
its wonderful that this grand old carousel was so beautifully restored.. there are not many of them around anymore, sad, really..
How very beautiful! I won’t guess where it is, but I love this picture!
Outstanding processing 🙂
I still love riding a carousel every change I get. The horses this one is comprised of, are gorgeous.
WOW!! Oh yeah, I can hear the music!
I LOVE calliope music! Great photo!
The building is by Jean Nouvel, the French architect, and the glass walls can be opened in nice weather, I believe
wow…i’m excited about having a look at this wonderful site! thanks so much for visiting my art page! greetings from n. ireland!
That’s a wonderful shot of the grand carousel in Dumbo. Especially at night, you got it so right! Congrats on this fine photo!
I love Carousels! This one is beautiful!
carousels are magical… you have captured the magic in this shot.
“one of those movies with flash backs into the past”. . . Face/Off maybe? 😀
Anyways, nice picture!
Wow! Fab shot! Love the contrast of the ornate carousel against the stark framed glass!
Nice! It almost has a creepy feeling to it…or maybe an industrial feeling? It’s awesome either way.
Beautiful! … love carousels. 😀
There’s something almost science fiction like about this merry go round.
Look kind of spooky when it’s not being used. Thanks for liking my post.
There is something unique about the “dimensions” in your photography work, and the way you angle your camera. Very impressive and enjoyable!
