Oh boy. Busy busy! So much to tell. I’ll have to do two posts, but first I’ll start with the Fair! 🙂
OK, so- as you may or may not know, I entered a photo in the Fair this year. I entered my textured Fair image from last year.
Long story short, I didn’t get hung. 😦 Turns out the judge this year was treating it like a fine art show, instead of a State Fair, and stopped judging at one point, saying he was done, and leaving a whole wall that was usually covered, empty. Many of the workers were disappointed, and they had more complaints this year than ever.
Better luck next year. It was a personal goal of mine just to enter, and I’m still happy I did.
I went on opening day, thinking I was going to see my photo, but since it wasn’t up, I went out and took more pictures!

It was a beautiful day, and not too crowded as it was a Weds. afternoon. I wandered around the exhibits, admiring the displays, flowers and the sand sculpture they do each year.
Chris and I went back one evening, and I got some first time night shots. I don’t have the exposure settings just right yet, but I got some that I really liked!
This years’ crazy food item was a Krispy Kreme doughnut burger! EWWW! doesn’t that sound just disgusting?! gah, I really don’t know how anyone could think that is a good idea. EVER. lol
I have to have my yearly funnel cake, and Chris and I will partake in some fried mushrooms, but Fair food is mostly b_a_d.
(Except for these ?)
