This year, I dared to bring my new camera, a bold move as often it's difficult to get form point A to point B without being bumped by overly zealous fair goers who think you are cutting them in line for their fried Oreos and funnel cake. I managed to make it through with the camera unscathed while gaining about 5 lbs., some mediocre pictures, and a lot of memories.
The main reasons I love to attend the State Fair boil down to 1) I love food, 2) I love animals, and 3) I love to people watch. Since I don't like to take pictures of people without them knowing and post it on the internet, (imagine that an ethical inter netter) the following pictures are mostly of animals, which if your anything like me you'll enjoy more anyways!
Enjoying our perspective treats, I got a gyro, and J got a fried chicken glazed doughnut sandwich!
Some goat friends! All the animals are there to compete, it's like a farm animal beauty pageant!
Bloomin' Onion, delicious and necessary treat, sliced up onion battered and deep fried!
So many cute bunnies, I'm not sure how they pick which ones win, I thought they were all blue ribbon bunnies.
Some chickens! They feed some white chickens colored feed to dye their feathers!
I don't care who you are, if you don't think this little guinea is cute, we are not friends!
Just a fluffly little cloud I made friends with.
Anyways, those are just a few of the shots I got at the always entertaining and interesting NY State Fair this year. I think I'll bring my camera again next year and try to get some more shots of the pigs and horses since I didn't get any this year. I hope it inspires some of you to get out and experience what your State has to offer!
May your life always be blue ribbon worthy,
