For your amusement

Just like the fictional TV horse Mister Ed, I never speak unless I have something to say. Last night I was rummaging around some old CDs and came across a set of scans of amusement park photos that I took several years ago. These were taken at Ocean City, NJ and Wildwood, NJ; probably in 2001.
The exposure times vary, but always at least 4 seconds. What amazes me is how still people can be without asking. Had I asked, they probably would have moved. I can give you details if you're interested, but the details aren't that important.
It's another dreary day around here, so maybe this will brighten it a bit. Probably not.
I didn't notice the "chaos" sign until I got a look at the slide. It's framed in my living room.
