Dawn and I went up to Tampa today for the state fair. It was lots of fun, as the pictures I took will attest. These are my favorite kinds of things to shoot. I think maybe my calling in life is to document the great American carnival. I can think of a lot worse jobs.
That ball landing in the bowl represents one of 4 goldfish that Dawn won.

You could get rides in the original Bat-copter! If I'd had my Phenergan on me I'd have done it, but no one wants to be the guy who puked in the original Bat-copter.
Zamora the Gorilla Girl was in Diamonds are Forever (as was the clown game I shot at Circus Circus at New Years) -but maybe not the same Zamora. We didn't go in to see her.
Pretty sure they had a nutria in here.
There were tons of animals also, but I didn't get many pics of them. I needed both hands to pet and feed them.
Lots more pics here.
