On a trip with Mary Poppins

600_9598-e2_wDo you know the stories of Mary Poppins, Jane and Michael’s nanny?

One day, when their father was looking for a new nanny for his kids the wind turned east and Mary Poppins arrived in the Cherry Tree Lane number 17 on a gust of the East Wind. She greets their mother, and slides up the banister. Now, Jane and Michael’s lives are turned magically upside down.

On one trip the kids and Mary Poppins met a carousel, just like the one in my photo. Although on the carousel I met no-one was able to ride one of the carousel horses free and follow the real horses on their track by leaving the carousel, like carousel horses were able to do when  Mary Poppins with Jane and Michael entered the carousel. But I was reminded to those stories and edited this series to fit in that scene.

When I arrived at the carousel, it was spinning around slowly and the music came from the old fair organ in the wagon in the background. A very special sound, not comparable to current carousels.

I hope, you like it

Take care!
