It has been years since I rode one of these!
Mark and I spent the evening at the Allen County Fair on Friday of last week,
the first evening that the fair was open. It was the perfect evening, warm,
an occasional light breeze, crowds of people, food smells everywhere,
and so many more sights and sounds.
I purposely set the camera so the lights on this “Thriller” ride would blur.
It already looks like a flying saucer, but now it looks ready for lift off.
Notice the boredom on the face of the attendant on the far left.
I guess if you’ve seen one flying saucer, you’ve seen them all….
This image is a bit ‘busy’, but isn’t that what the fair is all about?
Busy, colorful, noisy, prizes everywhere to be won.
I wonder what the man on the left is saying to the crowd?
And did the person throwing the darts actually win something for his gal?
Or for himself?
We actually rode the ferris wheel, and here is a view of the seats up in front of us.
Can you describe the feeling in your gut when that big circle starts to move?
Fishing. Prizes for everyone…right?
Someone has to work those booths.
For some reason I find this one kind of sad.
This last one is a favorite of mine. The people, the ride in the background, the game tent with the implied promise of a PRIZE EVERY TIME!
