I took our two eldest daughters to Blackpool Pleasure Beach yesterday and managed to survive the Pepsi Max Big One (the third biggest coaster in the world, I think, seen in the background of this shot) and various other rides and experiences. And while the Pepsi Max was rather daunting (it gets up to 74mph down a corkscrewing, almost vertical 200 feet drop), by far and away the most horrible experience of the day was the 'haunted swing'. This was a bench-like device, inside a room that rotates around the swing; i.e. the swing doesn't move, the room does – in an unpleasantly nauseating manner.
Anyway, I had my G5 with me yesterday, and didn't take a great deal of shots (maybe one more that I'll put up), but I will go back with the 20D at some point just to take photographs.
Oh, and the title of this shot refers to the coaster in the foreground of this shot; the Revolution. Fortunately neither of my daughter's wanted to go on it ;-)
