Looking down on the fun zone of the san diego fair where there are multiple amusement park rides. The rides are in operation and leave bright colorful light trails as they move during a long exposure. Crowds of people can be seen moving about and waiting in line

A Night in Wonderland | Del Mar Fairgrounds

Carnival rides at the San Diego fair make a veritable light show as they leave streaks of neon color in the night. Crowds of people walk through the fun zone and await their turn.

The Story Behind the Photo

I love going to the fair and taking in the sights and sounds. I love watching how the brightly lit rides move and leave light trails. I love people watching and seeing how everyone goes about their business or in this case fun. But there is so much going on while you are in the middle of it and completely surrounded by the action, you don't see how all the parts interact. So I walked around and found this spot that gave me the perfect vantage point. Far enough away that I can take in everything at once but not so close that I'm overwhelmed.

Acrylic Fine Art Print with a Float Mount — Ready to Hang

Trulife Acrylic Fine Art Print

This is a photographic print where the front has been directly adhered to a sheet of TruLife acrylic which is an ultra clear, scratch resistant, and anti-reflective glazing. This process is known as face mounting. The acrylic captures light internally and bounces it off the surface of the print resulting in a display with incredible depth and vibrancy. With proper lighting, the acrylic print will appear to have light emanating from the image itself. The back of the print is sealed with another layer of protective acrylic.

The print comes ready to hang with hidden mounting hardware on the back that makes the print appear as if it is floating in front of the wall. No additional framing is needed. Choose this medium for a modern and minimalist presentation.

Print is signed and numbered on verso (back).

Please allow 4-6 weeks for production and delivery of your print. The prices include U.S. shipping, please inquire for international rates.
