I realized tonight that I hadn't posted a photo up here in well over a week. I'm ashamed...I'd been doing so well until now, but I managed to slack off and forget again. In my defense, I've spent the past week or so getting ready for a showing of my photos at the cafe I work at, so I haven't been completely uninvolved with my photography, it's just been in a different format. So, enough excuses from me...I've reached into my archives again and found this photo (it could easily be the sister photo of this one...taken the same balmy August night in fact). I love the colors and last light of the day fading into the background of the fair. And yet again, Ashley and Joel are unsuspecting subjects!
This was taken August 23, 2008 at the Jefferson County Fair just outside of Shepherdstown. Joel and Ashley are the lovely subjects (along with the corndog vendor) and it's one of my favorite images from the night. I usually don't edit my photos as extreme as this one, but it seemed so fitting for this image. The original color version was far too distracting.
