Cecil County Fair
Last week I went to the Cecil County Fair in northeaster Maryland. I like county fairs; they're a nice throwback to a more simpler time in life when every day wasn't moving at the speed of sound.
I really enjoy the exhibits and the animals at the fair. Ribbons for vegetable assortments, baking and decorations, art, and other things that might be done in a rural environment maybe 80-100 years ago. It almost has a romantic feeling to it.
Of course, it's not 80-100 years ago; it's 2022, and county fairs have not only animal and food exhibits, but they have a midway with rides and games.
Obviously the ferris wheel was a particularly good backdrop for me. I thought it was pretty snazzy and easy to fill the frame with.
There were also some artisans at the fair; in particular, a glass blower and a blacksmith. I've always been fascinated by blacksmithing and this fellow was very personable. I ended up buying some 'tokens' that he made because he was just that good and I wanted to support him. I thought it was interesting that his forge was gas powered - no bellows at all in sight.
For this adventure I used my new-to-me Canon FT QL and a roll of black and white Ilford HPS5, 400 ISO.
