Had a few minutes to test out a new art lens (Lomography Petzval 58mm) around East Town Milwaukee.
Tried to shoot the Northern Lights last Tuesday at midnight at the very East part of the Veterans Park/McKinley Marina area in Milwaukee, but no luck.
So I went and found much easier to see lights.
In downtown Milwaukee, Wisconsin they have some great holiday lights in the same area they do their famed Jazz in the Park, Cathedral Square. They just took the lights down the other day so I’m now nostalgically looking at this 2-week old photo 🙂
I went to the last Saturday of the Fair this August, and brought along my camera to take some Wisconsin State Fair Photos. Even onto the rides. I broke my 5D3 to the lightest form I could, which included just using the light “plastic fantastic” Canon 50mm f/1.8.
After taking the above photo, the guy with his thumbs up (lower left), who I didn’t know, asked if I got him in the shot.
When I took the photo I didn’t realize he had his thumb up, but when I quickly reviewed it, my eye was immediately drawn to him.
He took a look at the photo and declared that it’s going to go viral.
I won’t be angry if he’s right 😛
The above photo is from one of the barns, at a coloring station for kids. I immediately thought this was hilarious.
The part that really gets me is that whoever colored this colored in one of the adults jeans, and then was like “screw this,” scribbling out the parents and sibling.
So this ride called “Skyflyer” was like a standard swing-ride on steroids.
It definitely didn’t seem super safe, and we actually had to come back down after initial lift-off as someone was panicking.
But it certainly was exhilarating and got some great views of the fair.
HORSE AND COW COMPETITIONS
And some more fun at the Fair…
The Wisconsin State Fair was already more than 2 weeks ago, and it sure makes you realize how fast summer is flying by. Was a great time and makes me wish I could make those moments last forever.
