Interesting People

Some people go to the fair for the cotton candy, carnival, demo derby, or rodeo. Or for the concerts, free things given away, or to see the exhibits. All those things are interesting and fun, but what I like best is the people. People are so much fun to observe and talk to. I like to discover their perspective on the world and hear how they think about things. A little friendliness goes a long ways in this world; especially at the fair. Sometimes interesting discoveries can be made. I didn't find this woman to talk to, but I did find her self-portraits! In the photography section she had a great montage of portraits where she was wearing hats. Later, I found her again, in the art section. Isn't she cute? How fun it is to discover the joy that others share, and to pass the joy along.

I'm not really sure this is a self-portrait. It may be the photography and art of a grandchild or neighbor. But, from my perspective, it's my view.

  1. I like the cotton candy and the smell of frying onions at the fair, but people watching is definitely up there at the top of the list.

  2. Hats are always a good idea. :)

  3. Love it! People are indeed fun to watch and observe. She looks like she is having so much fun modeling hats.

    but I do LOVE *Fair Food*...I am missing it this our town...

  5. I love to observe and talk to people I don't know. Everyone has a story and it's enjoyable to learn what that story is cause you never know what you might learn.
