Another set of images from the Washington State Fair. The similarities between this type of photography and street photography lie in the necessity of being constantly aware of your surroundings.
Things are always happening with such rapidity that if you are not aware and present, always observing, you will see the shot just a second too late.
Rides dotting the landscape provided opportunities to try to capture some sense of the experience. I toyed with the idea of using motion blur to give a sense of motion, but ultimately decided against it and tried instead to find moments of expression from the riders, all the better to give a sense of the experience.
There will likely be a couple more posts on this topic, a few more set more firmly on terra firma.
