…the State Fair!

There are a lot more Spinning rides than when I was a kid, but the energy, sounds of the Arcade barkers trying to entice you to try your hand at their game to “Win the big prize!”, the clicking,  and clanging of gears and tracks, the lights flashing, and whizzing by, the screams of delight and terror echoing from the tops of rides by children young and old, the sweet smell of Cotton Candy, and the rich buttery smell of  fresh popped popcorn wafting through the air all were the same.

Starship 3000, Ferris Wheel, and arcade.

Summer is...“Let the Spinning wheel spin”~Blood, Sweat, and Tears- Spinning Wheel

Ferris WheelMy goal on this evening was to have a lot fun slowing down my shutter speed to show the spinning of the many spinning rides.

Spinning RideThe Carousel was pretty all lit up so I took two images one to stop action showing its detail, and another with a slow shutter speed.

Spinning CarouselAll the images in this post were taken at the California State Fair July 2012. I missed last year, and hope to get to this year’s State Fair which starts in just about a month. With a little luck #1 Grandson will be with me and experience his first Fair.

I’ll leave you with an image of the gorgeous sunset we had on that evening.

Meet me at the fair!All images were taken with a Nikon D700 w/ AF-D 24mm f/2.8 lens| Tripod
