Today begins a week-long posting of photographs I took at the Santa Cruz Boardwalk. Until now, I’ve been posting random photographs each day, but thought it would be interesting to show these images from the Boardwalk as a series. Some of them may appear a bit different from past images I’ve posted as I experimented with some new techniques. So check back each day and leave me your comments about them.

This is 100th anniversary of the Looff Carousel at the Santa Cruz Boardwalk. It was completed in August 1911 by Charles I.D. Looff, a Danish woodcarver and is a National Historic Landmark. His first complete carousel was placed at Coney Island in 1875.
The photo was taken with a Canon EOS 40D, EF17-40mm f/4L lens, 1/30 sec (handheld) at f/9.5, ISO 125 on SanDisk Extreme IV Digital Film and processed as a single image HDR with Photomatix Pro.
