Salon 251 - All the fun of the fair

It's getting to be that time of year again when the travelling fairs take over the streets of your local town for 2-3 days. A wide opportunity for shooting interesting images, whether it's at night with all the lights, music and motion or during the day when the younger children are around and excited.

And if you haven't been to a local fair, what about the seaside? Or even the feria? The Spanish ferias are amazing

1. All photographs are to be uploaded to the photo gallery at http://dpnow.com/galleries/

They can be put in members own gallery if they wish. The resulting link generated for the photo will then be pasted into the next available space in the salon thread. Please keep photos to a maximum of 1000 pixels wide so people can see the whole image without scrolling.

2. As agreed previously, TWO entries maximum per user ID only please, which must be the personal work of the entrant.

3. Entries should be ‘in line’ within the thread (not as a link to an image held somewhere else).

4. Comments on entries are welcome within the salon thread itself.

5. After the close, the curator will indicate a winner and a couple of runners up.

6. The curator’s decision is final.

7. The winner will be invited to choose the next theme and curate the next salon.

8. If the winner is unable to curate the next salon the current curator may offer that ‘honour’ to any willing volunteer, possibly the entrant in second or third place.

9. These rules are to be copied and pasted with the new theme by the curator at the top of the new salon thread with a finish date and time.

10. As with all photos posted on DPNow, copyright remains with the photographer and DPNow will not use them without permission.

Closing date Midnight, Saturday 13th October.

One second, hand held:


Combining street and fair:

Re: Salon 251 - All the fun of the fair

Instead of a State Fair, all six New England states join together for the annual Eastern States Exposition (The Big E). Circus performers are a big attraction. Here's a shot I got of a Russian Acrobat.



And oldest grandson having a blast.

Re: Salon 251 - All the fun of the fair

Sorry I'm late - I was out shooting a gig and didn't get in until 1 a.m., so didn't want to fire up the computer!

Thank you to all who entered.

3rd place: Garry's fairground ride, which brought back memories of countless French towns with their carousel. I don't know if this was in France, but that was the vibe I got.

2nd place: Barrie's bumper cars, so colourful.

1st place: Andy's "no thanks" on Brighton Pier. Superb image, and so clear! (And my thoughts, exactly - no way).

So Andy, it's over to you.

Our Michaelmas fair starts next Wednesday and a local Facebook photography group is talking of meeting up. For me, it all depends on the weather - if it's like today (pouring with rain) I think I'll skip.

Re: Salon 251 - All the fun of the fair

Thanks Caz, for running this interesting salon.
Have to agree with you. The winning shot by Andy is the perfect choice. Bright, colourful and smiling faces.

Well done, Andy.

( My carousel image was taken in Florence, Italy )
