9918 HP51600 FM2 55Micro 005-EditI have never gone to the Washington State Fair in Puyallup. I only went this year to see the Washington State Photographers Exhibition. I was disappointed. I am not sure what I expected but I did not expect boring, safe images that would be forgotten in moments. It was the first thing I saw and after that, I had no real interest to see the fair. I stayed an hour and a half, took a few images, and left for home.

The color images were shot with the Nikomat EL and Nikkor-S-Auto 1:1.4 lens. The film was Kodak Portra 160. Developed at The Darkroom in Southern California.
