    Really enjoyed all of these. However, your photos of the Black Widow and the SkyCoaster- Kennywood would be well served to have you in their marketing department!! Great choices.

  14. Great pictures and what a fantastic variety! I especially like the birds on the wire photo.

  15. I love the palpable energy in Maura’s action shot; and I love seeing all the legs dangling from the amusement park ride. Cool images all around (of course; you have a knack for that!) :)

  16. I like your up photos, especially the first one.

  18. That upside down ride would be so awful. It scares me just to think of it. I like your up pictures.

  19. Lovely shots. I hope you didn’t run into anyone while taking them. :-) My favorite is the store ceiling at night.

  20. That’s one fearless kid climbing the rock wall!

  22. Wow! An unbeatable set of images Ruth! LOVE every single one! Maybe the ceiling of the Bleecker Street Store and the rock climbing shots a wee bit more :-)
