Viewpoints – My {Mountain State Fair} View

It’s our Viewpoints blog circle time again!  It’s always a treat to see where my circle friends have been recently and what it looks like in their part of the world.

For me, it’s a trip nearby.  Way back in September I visited the Mountain State Fair and I’m just now going through those images.  Truly my only purpose for going was to take pictures.  I wandered around the fair for a couple hours looking for photographic opportunities.  The colors were amazing!!  There were tons of people and they all seemed to be having a really great time.  Hopefully I didn’t look too much out of place with my big girl camera.  🙂

I started out using just a regular 24-70mm lens.

After a while I decided to try my Lensbaby Edge 80 lens for a different effect.  I love the out of focus feel this lens create.

Bright colorful rides weren’t the only attractions.  This sweet calf was born 3 hours before I took it’s photo.

And these two were apparently waiting for a judging contest.

I really enjoyed my evening of shooting.

Now I’m craving a funnel cake…. 🙂
