Well it actually wasn't the Conklin Fair but it was a travelling carnival and darn good fun to go photograph. Made even better by member Isabel agreeing to come with me to make images. Contrary to her own G+ post, definitely not a tag-along, it's worth your time to see the images she has posted on Google Plus. Go there. Follow her.
I wrote a post on the subject of these carnivals on my own site, that you can read here and see some images I made while there. I find these carnivals a lot of fun to photograph, but also sad as they struggle in the face of the always-connected world and for me they are a memory trigger for when I was much much younger.
