Photographer's Note

Taken at the 2009 New York State Fair.

Each year, fairgoers are also greeted by 2,000 concessionaires, offering everything from opportunities to win giant stuffed animals to knives that will cut through concrete to foods ranging from the exotic to the ordinary. The growth and success of the 12-day Fair have been spectacular, but in order to become totally self-sufficient, free of taxpayer support, the managers of the Empire Expo Center, home of the Fair, have made it a year-round center for business, the arts, entertainment, education and recreation, at the same time carefully preserving its tradition and foundation of livestock and agriculture.


In this re-post I used more of the original so that the ambient darkness was more prominent. The first one posted had been lighten too much. I also blurred the ferris wheel abit, so it was not as distracting.
