Some people don't like clowns. When I look at Auggie here, I am alternately pleased and disturbed. I'm pretty sure he (she?) is harmless but even so, that costume looks kind of... aggressive
There were fair-goers of all sizes. The smallest were in slings and backpacks and strollers. This little guy had graduated to his own two feet.
If you are a kid, what do you want to do at the fair -- besides go on rides and eat junk food, that is? The sandbox was filled with corn, or maybe soybeans. Whatever it was the girls appeared to be enjoying it tremendously.
This kind of construction toy, which seems to be very popular now, hadn't been invented when my boys were little; they had to suffer along on five million-dollars-worth of Duplos and Legos and Lincoln Logs and ordinary blocks. I'm not sure of the age of the person who built this. Could have been a 12-year-old, could have been a grampa. I'm not sure exactly what purpose is served by the colored fluorescent bulbs. It's cropped out of the picture, but they were wired to individual switches. Maybe the effect was more apparent after dark.
This is a detail from another object constructed from the same thingies. I never did decide what it was, but it was at least 12 feet tall.
Sometimes, one is lucky enough to see kids doing exactly the kind of things kids do. Even more rarely one is privileged to see it when she has a camera in her hand.
I think someone is about to lose his head.
