On August 24th Pat and I went to the State Fair in Pueblo, principally because one of my favorite recording artists, Dwight Yoakam, was playing right after the rodeo. I don't like country music, but I love Dwight Yoakam. LOVE. Words cannot express this enough. For 20 years I've been an ENORMOUS fan of his music (really, enormous is an understatement), but I've never seen him perform live. So it was a Very Big Deal for me to finally be able to see Dwight sing his songs, and he was amazing. Unforgettable. I took a lot of pictures of him onstage. I'll post one tomorrow.
Pat and I hit the midway after Dwight's show. It was so much fun. We haven't been to the fair in a few years, mostly because wedding season is a huge drag on my time and energy during August. But I always have a ton of fun on years when we do go to the fair, and this year was no different. Of course we indulged in all the gut bomb food (cotton candy, corn dogs for Pat, Indian fry bread for me), and we just walked around and did some people watching. The State Fair is the best for people watching! I brought along a fisheye lens and shot with it almost exclusively. Here are a few of my favorite images.
