Perfect Shot: Tilt-a-Swirl

Photos by Gino De Grandis

Earlier this summer, the San Mateo County Fair welcomed 16,000 people a day to its fairgrounds for carnival rides, exhibits, music and a little slice of summertime American tradition. Rarely missing the moment and with his camera always within easy reach, Gino De Grandis snapped this month’s Perfect Shot of the Viper amusement ride, elevated off the ground and shooting countless streams of dazzling illumination for all to see.
