It got hot here in Indiana this last week. Humid sweaty hot. The fair was perfect.

I miss you fair.

Mornin' fair.
A true Merry.
YO-YO, yo.
Ferris? Ferris?
Please do not poke sheep.
bai bai fair


  1. You’re just so GOOD with that camera… (sigh). I’m jealous.

    Kets last blog post..The funniest nonagenarian I know -OR- I could tell you what her real name is, but then she’d have to kill me

  2. What’s going on at the fair that someone needed to make that sign?

  3. These pics are beautiful!

    Martys last blog post..Cassey!

  4. Love the pics, especially the goat.

  5. Great photos. You should teach a class on photography!

  6. I wonder who was poking the sheep in the first place.

  8. Those pics are delish, the lights are captured beautifully! And the Moosh? Never seen you post a pic where she looks so much like you as that one on the carousal.

  9. All the pictures are amazing, but I just discovered that when you scroll up from the last picture to the first, the ‘lights’ pic seems like it is moving. Very cool. 🙂

  10. It’s a good thing that sign was there b/c I would have surely poked a sheep or two.

  11. So you can theoretically feed the sheep your fried Wunderbar, but you can’t give em a little poke? What’s up with that?

  12. So no Facebook for those sheep then?

    Or is it MySpace.

    Whatever one where people go around poking each other. Yeah, would be funnier if I actually knew what I was talking about right? Pretend I wasn’t here.

  13. These are amazing pictures — but I really want to know what’s up with that gladiator sheep. Had the State Fair introduced some events I don’t know anything about? Ours starts this weekend, and now I’m REALLY excited to see what’s in store…

  14. Don’t poke the sheep yo’

    I have been a hoosier all my life and have yet to make it to the state fair.

    sad, I know.
    there are fried objects there…

  15. What? Part of the fair experience is poking a sheep or two. Beautiful photos-thanks for sharing.

  16. “Please do not poke sheep.”

    That should be a state law in several states down here in the south.

    And my gosh, Moosh is growing like a weed!!!

  17. Those are some righteous photos. I do love a fair in action.

  18. i love these photos. i don’t know what Indiana uses to advertise the fair, but your photos make me want to go out and find a ferris wheel.

  19. Why have a sheep if you can’t poke it??????

  20. We’re going to our fair tonight. These pictures are making me so excited!

  21. re: sheep poking… I thought it was Texas where the men were men and the sheep were nervous, not Indiana…

  22. GREAT photos! Geez, what’s the fun in going to the fair if you can’t poke a sheep? Party poopers.

    I gave you an award, stop by to grab the badge!

  23. Oh my. Cool pics. I especially love the close up of the nose of that lil’ ole lamby.

    Can’t wait to get back to the norm’ after my big move to Oregon!

    Good & Crazys last blog post..More reviews and an Update…

  24. What kind of camera do you use?

    I love that sign that says, “Do not poke sheep.”

  25. You make me proud kid. I always knew your creativity and I’m happy that you found it extends to the camera too. You’re a natural. Love, Mom.

  26. You are simply amazing with that camera!

    Come to Minneapolis and take pictures of my wedding! Plllleeeeaaaaassssseeee!!! Or better yet, how much money would convince you to meet me in Chicago to take some “trash the dress” pictures, hmmmm? 🙂

  27. Please tell me you poked the sheep anyway?! Please!!

    You’ve outdone yourself with these fair photos. They’re awesome!

  28. ooooo if i were the jealous type, I would be completely jealous of the warm glowy lighting on your ridiculously cute kid. How much has society paid you so far for producing her? Not nearly enough I can tell you that. Stinkin’ gorgeous.

    Ems last blog post.."I never look back darling. It distracts form the now."

  29. I know I’m commenting months late, but I’ve been wasting time all day hitting the “previous” button on your blog. You’re great!

    I just want to know if there were Tiger Ears at the fair. I lived in Indiana till I was 12. I lived in Brazil and was in the Greencastle Branch back when they met in a farmhouse, and then moved to Terre Haute. We left there right after they split the ward in two. There’s probably a whole stake in TH now since that was, yes, 25 years ago (and BTW, how did THAT happen?). Anyway, it was always a Church Welfare Project to have a Tiger Ear booth at the State Fair. I have wonderful memories of hanging around the booth while my parents took a turn working, eating deep-fried dough with cinnamon sugar. Do they still do that?
