Blue Hill Fair Series (Many Images)

Discussion in 'Photojournalism, Candids and Street Photography' started by jklofft, Sep 11, 2005.

  1. Here is my latest series. I needed an excuse to exercise my new D2x and what better then a rural county fair. The Blue Hill Fair is held annually on the Labor Day weekend in Blue Hill Maine (a coastal community on the Penobscot Bay). It combines agricultural exhibits with the traditional midway rides and activites. Without further ado, the 2005 Blue Hill Fair:

    You have some nice captures, Jeff. I like the amusement rides taken at dusk with their lights on. Your skies looked nice which really makes the lights show up well. I'd love to know what that boy is thinking as he sits there among the cows! I like the image where the Border Collie is trying to herd the sheep. I own a shepard/border collie mix and she is crazy about herding!!! Great stuff, Jeff.
