A Fair Sunday
I like me a good fair.
If you gave me the choice between street photography in NYC or an afternoon shooting a fair, I’d be hard pressed to pick one.
Each, to me, is a photographically target-rich environment. I just usually seem to get images I like.
My buddy, David Bowman, sets the bar REALLY high for fair photography. A master, I’d say. He’s always in my head when I’m walking the midway.
I often seem to keep my fair photos in B&W, but this year, the color ones are catching my eye. The one that leads off this post, for example – an explosion of color. I like it in B&W….but I love it in color.
The tones and shadows in the two above, as well, have a better look to me in color than B&W. Almost straight out of the FujiX100T, too.
But….I had deep blue skies and high, fluffy clouds to work with, which translates really nicely to B&W.
I hardly ever do the selective color thing anymore. But I couldn’t help myself with this guy on his phone. His shirt amidst the background…I had to see what it looked like. What do you think?
Overall, it was a fun couple of hours at the Monmouth County Fair. Still a lot of summer left so one or two more may be in our futures.
Told you I always liked shooting the county fair!
