The County Fair, 2015
I’m a big fan of the county fair. The sounds, the smells, the questionable fashion choices some people, old and young alike make…
If summer passes and I don’t get to at least one carnival or fair, I feel like there’s a big miss in the fun-o-meter.
A few years ago, I shot series of photos that became one of my favorite photo essays ever.
It’s been hard to replicate that one. Sometimes I don’t get to go at the time of day I want to (early evening, when the lights are coming on). Sometimes I need to be watching the kids more than shooting.
But it’s still always fun to see what you can get. This year, we went just after high noon, so the colors were exploding.
Even saw some old friends (well, sort of. Doubt Frank remembers he was #75 in my 100 Strangers project when I shot him in 2011..
We all had a good time. The kids rode some rides, everyone had ice cream, I burned through money.
Until next year, when I continue to chase the carnival work of David Bowman…
