The Gallopers

Picture 035gardens2
After the Spring Festival, Andi and I wanted to go back to the Botanical Gardens to take some more photographs without so many people around. While there were people around (or rather more photographers) we did get a little while to shoot by ourselves.
I took a couple of far off shots of the Gallopers here, believed to be the second oldest steam-powered carousel in existence. You can see a close up shot of the Gallopers in my post, Spring Festival.

So today I say screw the Autumn leaves and pumpkins and bring on the florals! A nice change, no? And I had to take a snap of the beautiful water feature at the Gardens too.
