Two 2016 County Fair Photography Entries


The first photo is one I took during the two-horse-hitch and cart and wagon team competition at the Henry County Fair in 2015. It’s a pretty nice snap!

Farm equipment (ABOVE) just keeps getting bigger and bigger, doesn’t it? This powerful-looking farm tractor was on display at the fair in Napoleon, Ohio.

The following two tagged pictures (BELOW) are scans of photos I entered in the 2016 Henry County Fair Photography Show for amateurs.

The kitty-cat fondly looking at the bird-filled trees outside her screened-in window spoke to me of entrapment. Her eyes say she only can look and wish. I entered the photo in the Color Prints, 5×7 to 8×10, Animal Class. Shooting the snap through the mesh screen seemed very appropriate to her all-seeing, but not-able-to-do, expression.


A single pink tulip was my choice for the Color Snapshots, 4×6, Class for Flowers.


The photo (BELOW) soon became one of my favorites of the ones I snapped at the 2015 Henry County Fair:


The little fellow with the cute, pet-friendly ears was ultra willing to be noticed! I returned several times to spend petting time with him and snap photos. He seemed to enjoy the idea as much as I did!


Of course, one of the main features at county fairs is Standardbred (harness) racing. I like the snap of these two pacers competing because their drivers are visible only by their heads and feet!

Enjoy your county fair!
