Riding along on a carousel, will I catch up to you

And a little more of the Calhoun County Fair from back in August 2017.

SAM_9788.jpg

Couple of small cows who figure they've said as much as they can to one another and are looking for other conversational partners.


SAM_9789.jpg

Any questions? Mysterious label left on the ground between two of the barns.


SAM_9790.jpg

Gate watcher catches me looking at the mysterious warning that this gate would not be available at the county fair for the next year.


SAM_9797.jpg

I'm not sure if it was 2016 when there were no birds at the fair, owing to a bird flu scare. But they were back in force in 2017 certainly.


SAM_9799.jpg

The duck pond, in one of those shots that makes it look as if I could control what my camera's focusing on.


SAM_9802.jpg

Two-headed turkey considering whether it's worth coming over and pecking my camera to pieces. It decided it wasn't.


SAM_9803.jpg

The lone, so far as we could find, guinea pig exhibited at the fair. If it didn't take home some ribbons then there's no justice in the world.


SAM_9808.jpg

California grey on exhibit, showing off the breed's traditional pose of wanting you to come over a little closer so they can smack you right in the nose. ... It's not Penelope, of course, but now the picture makes me think of her.


SAM_9811.jpg

Flemish Giant (I think?) showing some fine leg sprawl.


SAM_9818.jpg

``Now how did I lay an egg up there?''


SAM_9819.jpg

Chicken who's just got no time for me or, for that matter, feather-unruffling.


SAM_9834.jpg

And now on to the rides! Ride operator looking close at the progress of the Ferris wheel. The rare shot where I have one person in good focus and someone else in motion blur.


Trivia: During the digging of the Culebra Cut, in Panama, midday temperatures at the base of the dig were rarely less than 100 degrees Fahrenheit, and often were between 120 to 130 degrees. Source: The Path Between The Seas: The Creation of the Panama Canal 1870 - 1914, David McCullough.

Currently Reading: Hidden Harmonies: The Lives and Times of the Pythagorean Theorem, Robert Kaplan, Ellen Kaplan.

PS: Reading the Comics, December 28, 2018: More Christmas Break Edition, those comics I should have got to back on Sunday.
