I encountered the Carousel Elephants in the airport at Tampa.  Intrigued, I took a few pictures in the cramped space and later wondered what I could do with them.  Here are some of my results.

I first thought of sending the elephants to Mardi Gras in New Orleans.  This triptych is the ultimate result.  The frame shown here is a concept; I later crafted the frame, adding crowns and comedy/tragedy masks in the corners.

Next, I envisioned the elephants as part of the carousel at the foot of the Eiffel Tower in Paris.  This image is made up of parts of a carousel I photographed in Avignon, plus an old photo I took of the Eiffel Tower back in the 1980s (now much distorted), a drawn in coloring-book style sky, and, of course, the Carousel Elephants.

Today, I decided that the Carousel Elephants would like to celebrate St. Patrick's Day, and here's a quick rendition of them about to enter The Chestnut Tree pub in County Cavan.  Looks like they are enjoying themselves!

Happy St. Patrick's Day
