Country fair

August 19, 2013

Country fare at the country fair (vašar). People come from miles around to see and be seen; for two days the town is bursting at the seams. The fair is held in the center of town, just in front of my apartment building. The music blares until 3 am.

If I had even just a handheld tripod the photos would be clearer. My little Sony can’t handle the exposed lightbulbs. (Cf. Chalk White Arrow’s beautiful post with photos from an American country fair, taken with a ‘real’ camera.) But I’m going to wear my heart on my blogging sleeve here and admit that I love these photos…

    I love these photos too! The blurred effect is really neat and fits with the atmosphere. The photos are so busy and packed with color and objects. I feel like these photographs blown up large would make for a cool installation!

    If you put your camera on a table (or object), then that can act like a tripod, if you’re in a jam. I ❤ my tripod, especially for photographing my artwork!

      oh your photos of your artwork are perfect… can’t even tell it’s a photo!
      I used a table in one of these photos… but for the other ones I didn’t find something I could lean my camera on…
      ooo and I like your idea of an installation!

    Looks like a fascinating cultural experience! I once ended up at a small fair in Georgia (the country, not the U.S. state; ha) which looks similar to your photos in many ways.
