Interesting photo. I must admit I'm really scared of roller-coasters!

Indrani said...

Good take on 'R'. :)
I too am slightly scared of those loops.

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Great "R" word, Ann... That is a huge roller coaster... I used to ride those things --when I was young and less fearful!!!! ha
Hugs,

I'm not sure if that is one roller coaster or several, but I think I would enjoy spending a day there doing some riding.

VioletSky said...

Wow. This whole scene looks like one big jumble - definitely not for the faint of heart!

I recall the jarring involved when being whipped around in a roller coaster. I do admire you for wanting to give it a try!

Ah, yes! Roller coaster! That's what I was going to do. Oh well, maybe next time around.

Carver said...

Great shot of the roller coaster. I was stuck on the top of one as a child when it broke which has made me nervous about riding them ever since.

Perfect choice for the letter R. I use to love Roller Coasters as a kid, not so much now.
You asked what radiant was on my post. The glass capsules each had a very large beatle (dead) on display. I have never seen anything so big as they were.
Thanks for asking.

Meryl said...

Wow. How colorful, inviting, and frightening all at the same time.

Cildemer said...

Great shot! And great roller coaster too! I wouldn't like to try it though!

Hope you are having a fabulous week****

ps: the people opposite the "hôtel of the wolves" were waiting for the guide to explain about the architecture of the building before visiting the yard!
We were not allowed to visit inside the building,alas!
