I’ve had a busy schedule over the last week or two.
I wanted to follow-up and let you know I had fun attending the bull riding event at the OC Fair last week.
Me – just before leaving for the fair. Yee-haw!
I love fairs –
For people-watching, and also for the many photography opportunities they present.
Cameras weren’t allowed inside the bull riding arena so I only had my iPhone with me to take photos on Thursday evening.
(Sorry, I didn’t get any great phone shots of cowboys riding the bulls. I was sitting a little too far away from the bulls to get good shots with just a phone.)
By the way, bulls seem like very angry animals. (!!!)
I arrived at the fair early to allow a little time for walking around before the event.
I love how the light falls toward the end of the day.
There’s something very comforting about a fair.
Nothing significant has changed at county fairs since my childhood.
Of course, I want to return with my “real” camera so I can get better quality (and many more) photos.
Phones are great for quick shots, but I’ve become spoiled.
I have my DSLR with me 95% of my waking hours.
I feel naked without it.
Hopefully, I’ll be able to make a return trip to the OC Fair (with my camera!) sometime in the next week.
I’m eager to get some good camera time there.
I’m also seriously considering getting a mirrorless or compact camera for events which won’t permit entrance with DSLR cameras.
Have you been to a fair yet this summer?
And if so, what’s your favorite part?
Baby farm animals?
