August may mean still sweltering temperatures and the approach of the end of summer, but it also means time for the Montgomery County Agricultural Fair. A multitude of food vendors, lots of carnival rides, animals, home arts, arts and crafts exhibits, and assorted livestock shows make this event one of the outstanding affairs of August. The fair runs now through August 20th.
“To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place…I’ve found it has little to do with the things you see and everything with the way you see them.” -Elliott Erwitt. Happy World Photo Day!

In honor of World Photo Day here is one of my favorite shots that I took when I went to the county fair earlier this week.
One of my favorite summertime activities is going to the local county fair, seeing all the farm animals and eating a funnel cake. The Montgomery County Agricultural Fair opens a week from today and runs through Aug. 22.
Of course there are rides and activities:
And all of the fried fair food:
And lots of carnival prizes:
But don’t forget about the Ag Education, such as the Moo-Ternity Ward & Milking Parlor:
And the contests, such as a Twitter Photo Scavenger Hunt returning for the second year in a row this year. Big surprise, I’m going to play and enter again this year!
