The fair was a great place to get reference shots of different animals. I wish I had the couage to take photos of all the characters there too. One old man had such a kind, wrinkled face with bright sparkling eyes and wore a cowboy hat. He was so happy to be at the fair! He was following his wife who had a hard-life look about her. They were complete opposites. Another young guy was dressed as Johnny Depp in Pirates of the Carribean. His long dark hair was a tangle of small braids, dread locks, and red hankerchieves. There were piercings and tatoos everywhere and he wore uberwide black denim pants with skulls and crossbones painted on towards to bottom. To top it off he was drunk as a skunk which made his eyes glisten and his body sway as he spoke. There were the hard core FFA members with plaid shirts, cowboy hats & boots, and straight backs. There were adorable little girls with brown curls reaching out to win their first stuffed animal prize. Spoiled girls crying that they didn't want to buy that, they wanted to buy this. People watching is a wonderful pastime.
