All over the country, summer is the time for county fairs. It’s an opportunity for our mostly urban society to get a taste of our more rural roots. It’s also a great opportunity for photographers, whether your interest is in people, entertainment, sports, animals, or flowers, the county fair offers it all!
I usually try to make it to the fair just to photograph people. You can see them interacting with vendors, petting animals, listening to music, watching harness racing and demolition derbies, or racing their trotters. It’s a smorgasbord of photo taking opportunities
