County Fair

When you sign up for CDPB, you pledge to post one picture a day, every blessed day, of you city. Not your county or equivalent, not your region, but your city. Phooey on that, I say. If you live in New York or Paris, well, maybe. You don't lack for material. For those of us out in the hinterland, we'll take our images where we find them.

My wife and I went to the Washington County Fair on Sunday in the blazing heat. Washington, Missouri is about 45 miles southwest of St Louis. The population certainly considers itself part of the St. Louis metropolitan area. The fair itself, however, is as country as Minnie Pearl's hat. This is a carnival ride in the amusement area.

I got lots of good images at Stressenfest and the Washington Fair, which will keep me going on posts for several days.

I wouldn't have passed up photographing that . . . and posting it on the Littlerockdailyphoto blog, if I'd been at the Washington County Fair.

Those lips! Those eyes! Do you think it is real, or could it be Botox?
