i’m still making my way through my personal photos from the last few months, and keep finding fun ones to share with y’all. 🙂 earlier this summer, i took a little trip to san diego. while i was there, the fair happened to be going on, so my friend amy suggested that we spend an afternoon there.
i love fairs. the colors and the vibe are super fun and perfect for photos. so of course i spent some time walking around the carnival area snapping photos of all the rides!
we got to go on some of the rides (the superslide and the super high swing, which is the first photo) which was fun too!
i ran some vintage actions on this shot. i kinda really love the feel. i’m thinking of putting these as a set of prints on etsy. what do you think? 🙂
my other favorite part of the fair is the fatty foods. you only get to indulge like this once in awhile, so why not, right? 🙂 hehe. my friend amanda and i split an onion bloom and a turkey leg, which was enormous. both were tasty though 🙂 amy had some BBQ chicken, and felt inadequate when she compared the size of the drumsticks, but then came out the winner when amanda and i were totally defeated by the turkey leg. EPIC FAIL.
speaking of indulgence, fairs = deep-fried crazy foods. so far, i’ve tried deep-fried twinkies (super delicious), deep-fried coke (it’s just deep-fried batter. undewhelmed), deep-fried oreos (YUM), and a krispy kreme chicken sandwich (not fried, but they sell it in the deep-fried booth. this was surprisingly delicious!). the deep-fried item getting all the buzz this year (there’s always one every year!) was ….
i kid you not. sounds gross, right? yeah, i thought so too. then someone told me that it was NOT a deep-fried stick of butter like everyone thinks upon hearing the words “deep-fried butter” (it would be physically impossible anyhow). it’s actually melted butter that’s been injected into a churro-type of pastry, which is then fried. it’s topped with whipped cream, and served on a bed of more churro thingies.

the verdict? it was pretty amazing…although my arteries are now clogged for life, and it made me feel lethargic for several hours afterwards.
the other fun part of fairs…photo booths! 🙂
all in all, a super fun day! can’t wait to hit up another fair sometime soon! 🙂
