Fall is Fair
Spotted shortly after the end of my work day on Friday. It wasn't the best photo I took yesterday but it best captured a moment.
Today, Saturday, we headed out to the Keswick Ridge Agricultural Fair and Livestock Show. It's a little fair with a hundred year old history. After shutting down in the late 60's, it was revived by the local historical society this year. A small event with sack races instead of carnie rides, the event was a little slice of rural paradise. I chose this shot of antique farm equipment from many contenders.
I also have the same shot with a sharper DOF, but I particularly like the way the blurring functions here. That said, I am beginning to worry that all my shots are close-ups that rely on this effect. I don't want this to become my schtick.
And now, because I can't resist, here's a couple more pix from the fair.
Damn. Both close ups.
