Carnival lights

When my friend Ed asked me if I wanted to go do a photo safari (aka go take pictures) at a local carnival, I was all in.  I have a photography bucket list, full of different subjects and and settings I want to take pictures of/in, and taking pictures at a fair is on that list.  Having a friend walk around and shoot with you is always way more fun than going by yourself.

Here are a couple favorite shots, I didn’t feel like lugging a tripod around so these were shot freehand.

Carnival-2623
Space was tight as this was quite a small carnival so compositions had to get creative.

Carnival-2673

Carnival-2645

 Probably one of the most “daring” rides at this little carnival. This is the one that keeps you against the wall with centripetal force.

Carnival-2782

Love the colored shots, but can’t help but love the movement in this BW shot.

Carnival-2764

Carnival-2712

  We got there in time to do some dusk shots which proved kinda pointless as there wasn’t enough space to have a good foreground setting, but we lucked out and got some lovely color in the sunset.

Carnival-2720

All in all, it was a fun night with friends, and the lovely sunset was icing on the funnel cake (which we all ate.. along with some cheesecake on a stick)
