Revolution and the Monster

.

How many Revolutions Per Minute can the kids get the merry-go-round to turn?

City Daily Photo bloggers are posting for our monthly Theme Day about the multiple meanings of REVOLUTION.   Give them a visit here.

My photo is from 2009 when daughter Naomi and grandsons Dean and Eyal come for a visit to Jerusalem.
In back of them is The Monster, in profile view.

The monster... every rebvolution has one.

I really like that one. It's a very different merry go round from what I'm used to.

Sharon Anck said...

Perfect choice. When I was a kid I used to make myself sick playing on these things.

VP said...

Very nice, my only kind of revolution!

Denton Harryman said...

Very cool .. I'm enjoying all the internatations of the theme and I always enjoy children at play.

I think I recognize the artist who made the monster. Could be wrong - could be right; Niki de Saint Phalle?

BTW - our dear friend and fellow studio building neighbor Malcolm Susman, has left us to return to Israel. My partner Vic kind of feels lost without him.

Well the young lad seems pretty determined to get those revolutions happening there Dina :)

Beautiful spontaneous image, Dina!

Jim said...

I don't see many merry-go-rounds like this any more. Good find.

Dina said...

Pasadena Adjacent, shalom. Yes indeed, Niki de Saint Phalle created The Golem, popularly known as The Monster, in 1973.
Click on my label "Monster" to see more about her and her other works in Israel.

Nice one, although I hate these things!

Karl Demetz said...

A fun choice for this theme, Dina !

Kate said...

These tilt-a-whirls make REVOLUTIONS quite a bit of fun but also an invitation for vertigo!

Happy memories.

Golly, those little boys must be on the cusp of teenegehood, Dina!

No matter how many rpm they can get it to turn, and I am sure it is lots, it would be way too many for such as I.

What a delightful image Dina!

Love that monster :)

We had a few of those spinning things at my school when I was a kid - it took a lot of effort to get them going.

In my city they won't allow a merry-go-round in the park anymore. They say it's liability issue. Seems strange that in a world with so much deliberate violence we are afraid to let our children play on the merry-go-round. When I was growing up, we had them on the school playground and in parks and I never saw anyone get hurt.
