What a face. Lizzi and I went to the Oregon Country Fair this last weekend and on a scale from 1 to 10. I would give the fair a 6. Now I should probably explain such a low score. The people are super friendly and very interesting. I loved the little stages with music going on all over the place and the food was really good to. The only problem I had with the fair is 95 percent of all of the booths selling things were all selling things you would buy to wear at the fair itself. Every booth had tie die shirts or dresses or wigs or capes or fairy wings or what every you can think of to ware at the fair you were at. I was expecting it to be like a big swap meet. Where you never know what you are going to find. I am a yard sale and thrift store junkie. I was expecting to find treasure instead I found costumes. I would recommend going once to just to see the people and the music but I would not back again for love nor money. Lizzi and I left after only being there for 2 hours because every booth was the same thing. I did get some great pictures which I hope you will like to. And anyone who was in costume if they saw you lift your camera they would do a quick pose for you. I mean the people there were just wonderful. I took this picture of this lady watching a couple of guitar players playing. She has a face like an angel. There are so many people running around so much that I had to take my pictures really fast and some of them came out a little blurry. I cropped everyone else out of this picture and played with it a little. I think she is stunning. I hope you like her to, ( please look in full zoom )

I think the full view is the same size, ha ha! Anyway Randy, I agree. I would have jumped at the chance to photograph her. I think next time just go for the chance to get more photos like this one and do your sale stuff elsewhere. To me, this shot alone would be worth a two-hour trip.

I'm really disappointed in you Randy, I never gave you the impression the OCF was a big swap meet. The OCF is about people, food, and entertainment. Go all that way and spent just 2 hrs., I can believe you. So many pictures to be taken. And I'm surprised you didn't go to the sauna and take a shower naked with other people. Well this is a nice picture....I personally miss the fair.
