Los Angeles County Fair

After literally years of convincing my girlfriend and I ventured to the Los Angeles County Fair. Taking my camera offers a few things for me. A way to express my eye and my art with photography… and an escape from reality. This, to be honest, started as being an escape from reality but as we walked around and I got in to it I started to realize just how beautiful the fair can be. The lights, the atmosphere, the night sky, etc.

(I am also trying a new method of posting my photos so let me know what you think)

This welcomed us. As if a gate way into the unknown… or maybe to the mountains.

Arial View… of some of it. I think it’s great to see all of the lights, the night surrounding it, and all of the trailers stored showing just how mobile all of this fun is.

LA Fair Rides

The Rides. The rides of the fair offer a beauty all in their own I have discovered. Some moving. Some still. In some the ride is the art. In others the people on the ride is the art. Spinning, emotion, and lights…

Prizes. What’s a fair without the prizes!? It seems like everyone either had the little ones or the large oversized prizes. For the most part I found them the most beautiful, and the cheapest, when hanging inside of the games.

The Fair Food. This one was captured the least. For two important reasons. 1) it was WAY overpriced and 2) when we did get it the hotdog fell apart and the funnel cake was a powdered sugar delicious mess. Here’s a couple though.

This next picture has quite the story. We pony’d up the $20 bucks to ride a ferris wheel that Bubba set up that morning. My girlfriend wanted a romantic ride, I wanted to take pictures, and… well.. this girl wanted to ride with us. I looked over and noticed we had a follower. After explaining she was not with us and we preferred to ride alone she tried to get out but the ferris wheel started moving. For the next few turns around the wheel – she was ours. Turns out no one else wanted to ride with her and we looked fun and inviting. Guess thats not a horrible quality. She loved heights (thankfully) and just looked out with wide eyes the whole time making me feel bad that I was so eager to get rid of her in the beginning.

And… my girlfriend on the ferris wheel – a welcomed guest. Notice the graffiti on the windows… classy.
