Alameda County Fair 2013 (Part 8)

Every year, Alameda County here in California hosts a fair from mid-June to mid-July on the fair grounds in Pleasanton, CA. While I am not a big fan of fair/amusement part rides, I thought it would be a great place for some photography, plus a few of my friends kind of dragged me along (a few of them requested I don't post photos of them online, therefore I took care not to include them in any of my shots). So, here I will be sharing with you the photos I took at the fair. The photos will include the rides and games in the fair, the Freestyle Motorcross, All Alaskan Pig Racing, Model Railroad, and some other stuff. I took a little over 200 photos, and will be splitting them into several parts. I hope you enjoy viewing the photos.

Today I have photos of the Model Railroad Exhibit, a photo from the small animals exhibit, and a few "street photography" type photos. This is the last of my photos from the Alameda County Fair.

Some machinery right outside of the Model Railroad Exhibit. 

A few photos of the Model Railroad. It was a very big one! 

A model bridge. 

It wasn't very bright inside so I was using my Canon Speedlite 600EX-RT. It reflected off the glass a bit. 

Lucky for me, there was something to set my camera on so the last 3 shots I did of the Model Railroad turned out really nice as I was able to exposure it longer. 

There was some sort of talent show in the fair too. I too a photo of the people watching the performance. My friends and I have been standing/walking and decided to sit down for a rest. I was too tired to walk to the performance stage. 

After our little rest, we went to the small animals exhibit. This is a photo of a tarantula. I wanted to get some photos of other animals, but they were too hard to photograph. Plus, I didn't want the owners to scream at me for using my super bright Canon Speedlite 600EX-RT. LOL

A photo near the White Water Ride of the people at the fair. 

My last image is of this giant Android inflatable inside one of the buildings at the Verizon booth. 

These are all the photos for today and for this chain of posts. I hope you have enjoyed viewing them. Please don't forget to share the blog post with your friends and family members!
