Just having been at the OC Fair, the girls in the swings is my favorite.

Didn't get a good pic like that of my boys. Frustrating all the blur or them leaving my shot before focus.

Harriet - as always, wonderful shots - really shows the fun, color & excitement of the fair. The wolfhound face is priceless, as is the terrified girl!

Thanks for the compliments - While the K-7 does better with AF, I think I might have pre-focused this particular shot and waited for the girls to come through. I know I had some trouble at first with timing, these things go around so fast.

Patty - ferris wheels don't bother me at all - I probably should have spent the money to buy a ticket so I could have taken pictures from the top (didn't think of that at the time). That could have been really cool. On the other hand, I went to Magic Mountain about 10 years ago and decided that there were very few coasters there that would go at my speed - the rest were beyond me.

Yeh, the only thing I did at Magic Mountain, probably about the same time you were there, was go to their water park and float in their river.

Looks like I was there longer ago than I thought - we went before they had the water park! I'd like to go again sometime, but only to walk around and take pictures of the rides. Not to actually ride them!
