Recently Seen at the Carousel

A woman stood next to the horse that her infant daughter was happily riding. Two seven- or eight-year-old girls rode in front of her, one of them earnestly spurring her horse on with an imaginary whip.

Meanwhile, on the opposite side of the carousel, a woman in a bright red dress was smiling happily and posing for her boyfriend's camera, riding sidesaddle on one of the horses. After a few photos and a kiss, she opened her red umbrella over her shoulder for another shot.

When I left, the two little girls were staring up at the magical machinery under the canopy, and the baby behind them was beaming at everything.
