Yep, just slap a black and white filter on your oh-so-meaningful picture and BAM! Instant DD.
Even so, it's still a good pic but not worthy of a DD.

Ja, dat is zo... zal wel een lange herstel tijd nodig hebben... Ik wens je veel sterkte!
Tam is heel erg ziek geweest - had dood kunnen zijn... Nu gelukkig een stuk beter, maar nog steeds herstellende. En op de koop toe, deze week haar schoonmoeder overleden. Het houdt niet op in die familie... zware tegenslag na tegenslag... Ze houdt zich staande, maar de berichten zijn schaars...

Kind of reminds of one particular experience I had on a ride like the one in this picture. I was with my older brother and I can't have been older than 13-14. As we sat down into the tea cups or what they are called, we both agreed we would pull and pull on the wheel in the middle until we couldn't hold on any more. If you haven't tried it, it makes the "cup" you're sitting in spin around in place and they can go quite fast. What happened with me and my older brother was something I'll never forget. We were both pulling on the wheel, trying to force it to spin as fast as possible, but I was not as strong as my older brother, who is 4 years older than me, which meant I didn't have the strength to keep going as long as he did. I tried to keep up with him, but suddenly gravity overpowered me and pulled me completely back in my seat, forcing my arms out on either side of me and my neck back as well. My brother, who still managed to stay upright, continued to pull on the wheel, all the while the ride was sending our "cup" around in other directions, both up and down and tilting a bit to the sides. Suddenly my older brother loses his fight against gravity and is slammed back into his seat as well. We're laughing our asses off and haven't realized that the ride has begun to slow down. Now, neither one of us can reach the wheel to slow down the spinning of our tea cup and the guy managing the ride begins to yell at us that we have to stop it, but we can't! And he can't do anything about it, there's no system to control the manuel spinning mechanism of the tea cups, and as soon as THIS becomes apparent to me and my older brother, we both laugh even harder than before. Helpless to do anything about it, we laugh into the blur of our surroundings as the voice of the manager bellows out again and again for us to stop it. We finally manage to fight our way back to the wheel and begin to slow it down, but it takes a while and we're still not done laughing. When the tea cup finally stops spinning, my world starts to spin. We we're still giggling as we exited the ride, with the managers eyes hard upon us, and I can tell you one thing, I have never been that happy and dizzy before at the same time.

Back to the shot you've taken: You have captured a precious moment in time, be proud of that. I, too, hope they'll see this picture some day. Have a great day ^^ :hug:

Me too! ^^ I tend to write long comments from time to time. I don't realize it till after I'm done writing it and then I don't have the heart to erase some of it if it all already fits well together, hehe. I'm glad you enjoyed reading it, I'm definately happy I shared it, seems more people than you read it as well and found it made them glad :)

Indeed! Accidents do happen at places like that. Fortunately, the only "harm" we suffered was dizziness and some mildly sore palms from slowing down the tea cup :P

(Wish I would have been there to try and capture it in a pic... but that would have been a hell of a task with all that spinning going on LOL)
And of course, thanks so much for the compliment!

Hehe, I'm really happy you liked it! It was my absolute pleasure to share it, the feedback I've gotten on it is so positive! I love it, when that happens, when my happiness affects others and gives them a happy moment!
You could probably have taken some very funny pictures of me and my older brother exiting the ride and stumbling around for the next 10 minutes XD but taking pictures of us spinning so fast, yeah, that would require a pretty "quick" camera, hehe :P
Aw, it was my pleasure! I adore the shot, you can really f e e l it ^^
