Ferris wheel being reclaimed by the earth

Ferris wheel, originally uploaded by bikerphoto.

This is located at an old amusement park in Southern, WV. The name of the park in its heyday was Lake Shawnee. The day I shot this I talked with the owner of the property, Gaylord White. He gave permission to shoot here, telling me that this location has been featured on the television program, "The Scariest Places on Earth." I remember being a kid on my way to visit my grandmother in the 60's and passing by this location very often. it was once a very popular place in the 50's. This is near Pinceton, WV. Mr. White still uses the property to entertain local residents with a catfish tournament every saturday night.
