I’m still trying to get caught up here on the ole blog, so I thought I’d share some photos from back in October (!). Every year Eric and I make sure we take a trip to the State Fair. This year, Eric organized a group from the photo club to go. It was a lot of fun to wander about as a group, particularly a group of photographers. I love seeing what other people are drawn to shoot. And of course, this was my first time with the fancy-pants camera, so I was anxious to try it out.
One of the things Eric likes to do is see The Killdares perform. Last year was my first time to see them and this year’s performance did not disappoint!
Of course, it also afforded me some great opportunities to people watch.
I love finding different sculptures and artwork while we wander through the fair grounds. There was a whole forest of these license plate pinwheels that I thought were great.
But, of course, my favorite shots are usually from the Midway – all the food, rides, games.
This photo of the corn dog was one of my favorites of the day. You wouldn’t believe the strange looks you get when you’re hovering around the condiment stand with a camera though.
And this shot – although mostly blurry (and unfortunately my watermark is covering up the best part) – I had to snap a photo of this guy in the hat with the glasses. He is awesome.
Not quite as awesome as this though…
When the sun started to go down, I really enjoyed playing with the different settings on my camera. It was short-lived though because I finally had to succumb to a migraine and plant myself until the group was ready to go.
These two I’m just in love with. Look at that sky. And the red. Love!
Hope you enjoyed that virtual leap back in time. I really had a lot of fun at the fair, and I was so glad to have my new (almost a year old) camera to try out!!
