girl operating a hand-cranked merry-go-round


marina beach in chennai becomes very crowded in the evening when the day cools off, and local family-operated “businesses” set up little amusement rides, shooting ranges (of the type shown here), and snack stands to attract the passers-by. this girl is practicing, but hopefully won’t actually have to do the turning when it’s loaded with other children.
