Dixon May Fair
Back in May, I had the chance to visit a small local fair. The Dixon May Fair is held in Dixon, CA, not far from my new locale, Davis.
I was sporting a new camera, the Nikon D7000 with the kit lens. Need to be a little lighter lately, due to a back injury–so this works well:)
There is always something so humbling for me with new technology, or should I just say, new to me. The D7000 is my fourth Nikon DSLR and I was feeling quite smug…not reviewing the manual and thinking I could just “wing it”. One of my favorite lens, is my Lensbaby. I liked this shot, because it reminds me I have much to learn–plus it has a trace of the Lensbaby Blur I so enjoy. This image was created by operator error!
I did do a bit better navigating settings on my camera and had a super time on our maiden voyage.
The best part of the fair–aside from the food, is being there at night to shoot The Midway. So, here we go!
Sometimes, life just seems to pass by in a blur and time moves quickly.
For me, some of my favorite shots are longer exposures and the blend of lights.
And of course, the favorite…the Ferris Wheel!
Also took a moment to enjoy the reflection on the windows of a nearby trailor.
I am really excited for the California State Fair which starts on July 14th. Will look forward to sharing more fair images in July!
