Sorry, Folks. The Park’s Closed. The Moose Out Front Should Have Told You…

Indiana Trip, pt. 1-The Indiana State Fair Photos.

I was trying to create a Facebook Album for these shots so that I could tag them and do all that fun stuff…but uploading 200+ pix at 10 at a time was ridiculous. So I’m doing it the way I should have started it 2 hours ago.

Here’s the full album of the Indiana State Fair pix and then, following that, will be some shots I pulled out because I like ‘em! :-)

Looks like they may also get uploaded to Photoshop online (which I think I can just push them over to FB from there, we’ll see).

Anyway, here are some that I think really stand out-about 1/3rd of the full album (not sure I’ll be doing the color commentary on all of them-it’s taken so long to get them uploaded, I’m just gonna let you make up a story :-) ).

Bees are very partial to Sno-cones.

DSC_1944_editedIt’s as American as State Fairs and Monkey Nuts…

DSC_1945_edited DSC_1946_edited This is my favorite pic of these two.








I was able to get more night shots in Indy than I did at the Ohio State Fair for 2 reasons. The midway is laid out better in Indy. So I actually had better shots and angles and could group things better. I also think the lens made a difference-I’m sure it did (for reasons I can’t quantify).

  He’s got his Tonka. Word.


And now we start getting in to the night shots on the midway. I’m really pleased with how a lot of these came out.

DSC_2038_edited If you think Jen didn’t know where the camera was at all times, you’d be wrong.

Took me a couple of shots to figure out that the lights from the rest of the midway were reflecting in the ‘balloon’ ride. This was the best of the lot. DSC_2126_editedAfter talking to the carny about cameras (a much better conversation than my run-in with the one at the Ohio State Fair), I got her to demonstrate how to win at this event. I didn’t really want any SpongeBob dolls, so I thanked her and when on my way.


I got really fortunate this time and got some really good Ferris wheel shots. I was very pleased with how many of them turned out. DSC_2132_edited







This last shot with Glidden and Cruz is great. It’s like he’s studying his papa.

DSC_2148_edited All in all, another great year at the fair!
