Circles of Delight: Classic Carousels of San Francisco. Aaron Shepard

Circles of Delight showcases three of the most important carousel makers ever.  All of  these displays happen to be residing in San Francisco, which, has rendered this city a carousel lovers dream.  It isn't fair, really.

Circles of Delight: Classic Carousels of San Francisco. Aaron ShepardAaron Shepard took a business trip to San Francisco with his wife and spent three days capturing these images and while we are enraptured, we are also a bit upset.  We wanted these images all to our self.  Who are these frequent visitors who seem to be perched above the objects of our fascination?  Did they not have something better to do with their time? 

We are sometimes selfish.  And, we own that.  But, seriously.  Could those images containing insignificant others be schedule for day four, perhaps?  These people were seriously interrupting our aesthetic joy.

That aside, we really enjoyed the book.  There's no fluff.  No foof.  No minutia.  Just beautiful images. 

Now, we would like a matching bath towel, calendar, t-shirt and slippers, please.
