This past weekend we went to the Oldham County Fair with a group friends. We had such a great time last year… and some interesting things happened… but it wasn’t the same. For starters, no moments of silence for recently passed WWF wrestlers. (RIP “Rowdy” Roddy Piper) No hijinks during the national anthem… no f-bombs to follow. (The most amazing thing I’ve witnessed in real life.) I will admit that the recorded applause during the anthem on Saturday night was a nice touch though. Still love the demolition derby, still love people watching… all made better because the county is wet this year. But all in all it was a great time to be had!
With the camera in tow, I photographed the evening to my heart’s content. And I really like the pictures I walked away with. Several of them hit me in the gut when I was taking them… and I know that I’ll be looking back on these next summer when we begin gearing up for the county fair again. As expected, we had a great time with our friends, their kiddos, together enjoying a piece of what this small community has to offer. Oldham County Fair, you don’t disappoint!
