The Western Fair
misc: I went to the Fair yesterday. This turned out to be a good thing as it is raining now and it would have been a different vibe today, although still interesting. It is your typical medium sized fair with a midway, agricultural buildings, and other attractions. I have been before but not with a camera in hand and I spent about 5 hours wandering around - which is a lot of walking given my recent sloth like demeanour. I walked to the fair and back as well.

Highlights: seeing my pictures up with all the others in the photography section (In the north building by Dundas). I know I can do better next time. I didn't win anything, but there were a great deal of excellent photographers. And one who had blown up and mounted 8x10 a pic with the digital date/time stamp on it.... not for arsty effect. Additional highlights included the Trampoline stunt folks - who were quite cool, the West Coast Lumberjack show, and the raptor show. Oh, and wandering into the staff/performers only area of the new Agriplex building on the south side of Florence St. and watching horse folks rehearse. And getting the odd evil eye as a result. :)

Lowlights included trying to take good pics of people on rides. The one I included here was cool because I caught these two girls holding hands going up the huge tower a moment before the thing lets go and you drop to the ground. When the mechanism released, I caught a pic of them letting go their hands too. But ride pics were a challenge. Mainly too much sky and the people on rides being under exposed. Has to be a trick with metering. I only got one of the carnies and no good overall middway pics. Hopefully when I go back on Saturday I will be able to get some more, including some from the huge Ferris Wheel. There are a few pics up on in a set on Flickr, and more to follow as I edit them - certainly more of the trampoline and the lumberjacks.

Laundry calls.

Carpe Diem

I saw your pics, and maybe I'm biased but I still think the one from Capistrano should have won something. Anyway, it's still my favourite.

thanks. :) I thought the one of the moon like island in Newfoundland didn't look good at all amongst the others. Worth a return trip to shoot it I think. :)
