Last August, Polly and I traveled to Findlay, Ohio to attend the Feast on the Street. Put on by The Arts Partnership, Feast on the Street is a one night event offering live music, beer, and a variety of food.  This year, I focused my photography on people operating food trucks.

Taste of the Arts, Fort Wayne, Indiana: The Aged Face of Wisdom

Two summers ago, I attended the Taste of the Arts with several of my children and grandchildren. Held annually in downtown Fort Wayne, Indiana, Taste of the Arts exposes attendees to a variety of artistic and cultural experiences. This year’s Taste of the Arts will be held Friday, August 24 and Saturday 25.  Taste of the Arts brings all sorts of people together for their two day event. If you enjoy street photography, you will find a plethora of opportunities to ply your trade. I’ll be there this year, and if you live in the Fort Wayne area, I hope you will do the same.

I have posted two other articles about our family’s recent visit to the Henry County Fair in Napoleon, Ohio — A Young Woman and Her Cow at the Henry County Fair  and Vintage Military Planes Fly Over Henry County Fair.

Here are four miscellaneous photographs you might find interesting.

Sleeping beauty, Henry County Fair, 2017. Hard work, long hours, I saw several young people sound asleep, oblivious of their surroundings. I envied their ability to do so.

 

 

Vintage Military Planes Fly Over Henry County Fair

Last Saturday, my wife and I, along with our oldest daughter attended the Henry County Fair. While touring the fairgrounds, five vintage military planes streaked through the sky. I really didn’t have the “right” lens for taking photographs of the planes, but I learned long ago that it’s better to shoot and fail than not shoot at all. As you can see, I was rewarded for my faith.vintage military planes 2017 (2) vintage military planes 2017 (1)
