Circle and a Circle

I love how the adults sitting in a circle around the tree echoes the merry-go-round behind them.

Mrs. Left

I love the lady to the left. She has a sweet smile. Reminds me of my late Grandmother.

Interesting...

...How merry-go-rounds have not really changed from 80+ years ago. How every dress is different and how they are dressed up, some with hats...how today that picture would have all jeans/casual sweats.

Polkadot dress

Sure reminds me of Ma Kettle
