A Date at the Fair

A Date at the Fair

Those old-fashioned street fairs are fun in the daytime, rides turning in the heat of August, too much cotton candy and pop taking their toll…but for all their fun in the day, they are magical at night, the lighted rides turning against a starry sky, the attractions an oasis of colorful neon and incandescent in the midst of an inky darkness of streets, then just as suddenly as it sprung from nothing in a parking lot, it’s gone, leaving only darkness and cool September nights.

In this photo, a couple on a date wanders toward the rides.

From back in my first year of photo blogging! This event is coming up again, and I hope they have the rides for great night photos.
