a concert at the fair.















I can't believe we've lived here in Orange County almost 4 years, and never made it out to the OC Fair until this past Friday. Shame on us! Our friends' family had extra tickets to the Styx concert (entertainment that night at the fair) so we tagged along with them, and after the concert got to roam around the fairgrounds, spend ridiculous amounts of money on fair food, and even get a free ride on the ferris wheel! I knew all of one Styx song, but it was still a riot and I'm so glad we got to go. I always imagined when I would finally get to go to the fair that I would take photos during the day with natural light, but there was really something magical about the whole place being lit up at night with all the colorful lights and signs. I had so much fun experimenting with using my camera after the sun had gone down, and also I think I took enough blurred lights photos to hold me over at least until Christmastime (I hope). No guarantees though.

  9. great photos! we went to the oc fair on wednesday and stumbled upon Queen Nation (a Queen cover band that we had seen a couple years ago in Lake Arrowhead) and that was an unexpected surprise. our favorite part about the fair is the photo booth, beer and the corn! so delish.
    looks like a fun night.

  10. I love that evening blurred lighting, just beautiful. And the OC fair is the best! I lived just down the road in Newport back-bay during college. And I must add, one of the first fairs to fry butter :) So.. there's that.
