Swing Away

A child swings through the air on a fair ride in Horezu, Romania. Your Shot member Marius Cinteza, who made this image, writes that the attraction is at the popular pottery fair Cocoșul de Horezu (Cock of Horezu), so named because of the rooster motif commonly seen in the ceramics there.
