The county fair that is. As promised in my last post I said I was going to shoot some photos at the county fair after it was over. It was, thankfully, another beautiful summer day and, although a bit hot walking around, I found the grounds to be a lot drier than they have been in the previous years. No slogging through mud. I did run into a gentlemen who asked why I was taking photos. I am surprised I was never asked by anyone in previous years. Anyhow, he said his family owns the rides and he pointed out a few that they own that are quite rare and old and gave me a bit of a background on them. Quite interesting.
I was planning to show a gallery of photos like I did in the last post but in the interest of time (as in, I have none to process the photos) I am just going to post one photo this evening. This is a photo of a simple, yet spectacularly beautiful ride that is full of color. The color image does, of course, look nice but, since I was planning on black and white images when I went out to shoot, I thought I would try something a little different and go with a split tone black and white image to better accentuate the lines in the photo. What do you think?
Hopefully I’ll have time to throw some more pics up during the week.
