Salem Fair Photo Outing
Wednesday 31 August 2011 — Category: Outings
Oregon State Fair in Salem. Contrary to the usual 100 degree weather, it was cool and cloudy, with even a few sprinkles of rain! The dramatic drop in temperature was a big blessing, even if it wasn’t ideal weather for picture-taking.
I wasn’t very interested in going to the fair, but I decided to treat it as a photo assignment / challenge. Maybe I shouldn’t have looked at the photo exhibition first, because after seeing all those gorgeous photos, it kind of put a damper on my enthusiasm. Between that and the gray weather, it wasn’t my best picture-taking outing. But still, I tried. I think I managed to get a few decent shots, including this pig. You can see the entire album of 23 photos by visiting the Oregon State Fair 2011 photo album.
