The Minnesota State Fair is huge, both in size and popularity. It is the largest in the US. It lasts 10 days and attracts nearly 2 million visitors. I did an experiment this year. I went to the Great Minnesota Get-Together just with my iPhone and cash in my pocket. I had a blast! No pressure to get great shots, just recording life around me with a simple tool. The following pics are straight out of the iPhone, I didn’t even bother with an app. to make them look cool, the pics should speak for themselves… They’re not very sharp, they’re not properly exposed, but that’s not what story telling is about!
I had fun captioning the snapshots, I hope you have fun reading them.
On the bus to the fair
Stuck between a belly and a butt…
The guy in the middle must be a sharp shooter!
It’s not a cig, only a fry!
Eat up, you’re going to need a lot of energy to carry those giant Teenage Mutan Ninja Turtles all day….
You’re cute, but I will not play the basket ball game, I’m sure the diameter of the hoop is smaller than the ball…
Friends enjoying a break… and a snack!
That’s a lot of cookies… Do you know the saying: ‘A minute on the lips, a life time on the hips’?
Eating close to the garbage can…
Yep, the corn on the cob is a big seller!
Big boys with sippy cups 🙂
Parading on the service cart
I don’t care much for mustaches in general, but those are cool!
I won… And it only cost me $50 in tickets!
Remembering his childhood on the giant swing…
Always an old favorite!
Checking out the Java Jive.
I see triangles!!!
A happy grandpa
Maybe I should deflate it for the day…
“Come on, it’s only 3 tickets!”
“Come here, you won’t regret it, 1 ball for 3 tickets!”
“I know I can hit the bullseye, the sign says Winner Every Race!”
Visitors came all the way from Scotland!
“I do love you, but I need to check my messages.”
“A little nap and I’ll be ready to walk for a few more hours…”
“Holding it for my grandson.”
“This is just grand, honey!”
Girls just want to have FUN!
