In Motion – at the Fair


Have been Oregon county fair and Eugene country fair, but this is the first time I went to the State Fair. The door opens at 10:00am when the sun is way up high. The bright light was dazzling everywhere I go, I could still take some pictures if I wanted to, but my spirit was defeated by the heat and I was not enthusiastic enough to wait till sunset. People kept swarming into the fair, I may choose to frame some candid shots, but I was just not opting for it.


Brought home some unimpressive pictures… While I was ready to conduct my delete spree, I happened to watch a video about motion blur. So here you go, that little discovery drove me to add motion blur to some pictures. Just for the fun of it, I did not spend lots of time detailing them and making them perfect.

I cannot remember when was the last time I was on a roller coaster or any of the thrilling rides. The rides surely bring up a load of acute nostalgia.

When the rides reach a high point, I heard constant screams. Some of them sounded pretty desperate begging to come down while others were laughing out loud.


Who does not want to have a peek of someone’s collectible antique cars? Eventually there is only a small percentage of people can afford to own such expensive toys.  The space with car display is limited and crowded. It is almost impossible to photograph a car without any background distractions. The good news is, I had chance to play with the new app I was just exposed to.
