For me, it was a busy day. Good and very busy. I drove to Lafayette to get some Chinese food and took it to the Columbian Park to eat it. Then I walked around and shot a few pictures.
After that I thought maybe it wouldn’t be a bad idea to drop by the Fairgrounds to walk around it at the Fair. It seemed a lot was missing in some of the tents and some were not even open.I watched the horse show which didn’t make sense to me. I think they were judging them as all the horse and rider did was trot around then go stand beside the fence. After watching them for a while I left to go back home. Stopped there for a while and switched cameras then drove down to Crawfordsville as the fair was on it’s last day there. Lafayette is Tippecanoe County and Crawfordsville is Montgomery County. I arrived at the Crawfordsville fairgrounds and didn’t see a lot of activity going on. Walked around and found out the last few venders were packing up to go back home. Alrighty then! Missed that one for sure. So off I go back home to rest up my aching back for the events of the night. Yep, I had planned on visiting the fair in Lafayette so I could take some night time photographs of the fair rides and booths. So that was the plan.
Parking around the fairgrounds is a joke. So many people go that finding a parking place was a task in itself. I found one across the street from a friends house in a church parking lot. I parked in front of a sign that said Senior Parking. Hey, I qualify since I am considered a Senior. 🙂
I only had to walk two blocks to get to the fairgrounds and when I got there I found out just how busy it actually was. The rides area was packed. At times the traffic came to a stand still due to some individuals stopping and holding up the whole show. Gheese! 🙂
I took a few shots when the sun was up.
I was really anxious for it to get dark. That is when the fairs are pretty with all the lights going.
It was almost dark but not good enough yet.
Okay, the sun has finally went down and now I could have my fun. I hope you all enjoy this type of photography. I enjoyed doing it.
I even shot video of the rides but have not pieced them together yet. I might work on that soon but then…………………………..
