A day at the fair to end the summer
“Expo Quebec” is Quebec City’s big 10-day-long fair, during which there are games, rides, animal judging, various shows, sand sculptures, concerts and probably other things I’m forgetting. It happens each year around mid/late August. This year was its 100th anniversary and I went for the first time, mainly because Twisted Sister were performing… I spent the afternoon there and took the opportunity to play a few games (it had been a long time since I’d done that) and snap a few whimsical photos. Some were taken with a Lensbaby to test it out, others with a regular lens.
The Lensbaby worked quite well for these photos (especially for the pirate boat and skee-ball game), but I’m not sure I’d use it for everyday photography…
On to the photos:
Prizes. I’m a pro at those water gun games, so I won us an orange dragon and a monkey with a banana on its head. Not that we needed more plush toys around the house. Also, Skee-Ball should be renamed Impossi-Ball. Because that’s what it is.
