Tina insisted I post this. She feels it is representative of the fair. The central booth, the ride in motion to the left that is reflected in the glass, the Ferris Wheel over the top of the booth, the food venders towards the back, the numerous signs all vying to catch the eye... a veritable sensory overload for just about anyone.
I forgot my tripod and had to make due with trashcans, fences, random posts or benches to hold the camera still!
Canfield Fair; Labor Day 2011.
Bates Brothers owns the rides.
Very nice shot!
Thank you. I have a lot of pictures from the fair I need to post on my stock site. Some will be good for Halloween as I got loads of pumpkins in pics!
i really like this shot! i love the colors that are with it. when i first saw it i thought it would be a cool drawing to do with colored pencils it would look really nice but a great shot
True! Give it a try! This can be used as stock
You guys chose a great day to go...not too hot and with a sweater not too cold. So jealous that of the elephant ears though...it has been ages since I had one. Sorry to hear Tina and Linda had car drama. It is just not Tina's year for cars.
No, it isn't her year for cars. How odd, because we took the Ford yesterday, which is a 2010 but it kept making loud brake sounds.... and it is now in the shop getting the brakes fixed! And they are not covered under the warranty! Just weird!
Thank you. We had a lot of fun at the fair this year. Tina will probably be posting some good pictures when she gets a chance!
We could do with something similar in this country. I recently took some special needs kids to the fair and something like you have there with the size safety kiosk would have saved much in the way of disappointment. I think this particular country is sizist unlike yours.
All theme parks I have been to in the US have warnings and procedures for safety, especially pertaining to size. Usually there is a sample ride car outside of an attraction to see if a person will fit properly. It could be height issue, weight.... some people are just too short for some rides and some are too large. But there are usually rides that can accommodate just about anyone, so a person won't feel totally left out.
I wish it was the same way here, a couple of the kids in our party were way too heavy for the rides that they wanted to go on, no fault of their own I may add. We didn't have any height issues this trip but that was always a factor when Daniel was alive, he was 6 feet 9 and as a result was too tall for many things amusement parks being the least of them. Apart from the issues with certain amusement park rides all the kids said that they had a wonderful day out and really thats all that matters. I'd have preferred forewarning about the park though so as to avoid that section completely and avoid anyones disappointment.
