The Carnival Season Starts

I'm a really big fan of photographing carnivals. Those ones that set up in mall parking lots. Especially after dark. Some are more grungier than others, but the people are always friendly. By accident I came across the first one I've seen in town this year. I spent Thursday evening wandering around, talking to the workers and the customers and generally having a good time. After the sun goes down, what was a pretty drab place transforms into one gigantic light show. A ride that can look pretty inoccuous during the day can change into something darker when the colored lights play across it. A great place for a photographer to go out and play.
