    1. Hi Simmone! Yes, must agree that there weren't alot of smiles in these shots. The mini football game man looks a tad scary! x

  4. Great pictures. Really in the moment. I have photographed in our local county fair and I don't have the guts yet to just stop people and say, "Can I take your picture?" So I never really capture it. Next summer I will give it a go.

      I need to spend an afternoon with John Kincade for his superior command of the english language & lyrical abilities...
