Candids from the fun fair

  1. A gloomy Bank Holiday Monday wouldn't be the same with a trip to a local fun fair :rolleyes:

    I am getting into taking candid shots; at first I was rather self concious and almost expecting trouble from passers by and even worse - the police! Now I am getting more relaxed and maybe that is one reason why so far so good nobody has caused me any problems.

    All comments welcome. The shots were with a D300 and Sigma 150 2.8 or Nikon 50mm 1.4

    1) I like this one for the legs
