    Anyone besides me planning to attend the fair?

    I don't leave home much but I'm determined after 8 years to make it to the fair this year. I'm planning to be there Friday (morning through afternoon).

    We go every 2 or 3 years and plan to go this year (though probably not Friday). I was thinking of bringing a TLR, since it's not as obtrusive, in spite of it's size, as a camera brought to eye level.

    Take it slow and enjoy it.

    will be going with my wife and kids this year; probably not until next week, though. we have to squeeze it in between soccer practice and orthodontic appointments.

    As fashionable as it is to hate on the Fair, I'm still going.

    Seems like the perfect place to give the Rollei a workout.

    Hey all,
    I went last Saturday and it was a great and very busy day! I also brought my favorite Kodak Junior six-20 folder and got some really good pictures.
    My wife and I are fairaholics!

    I am new to APUG and usually take a film camera (TLR's being my favorite) but this year I did not unfortunately. The art and photography were quite good this year though. I hope some of you who went will post your pictures
    maybe you will win the photo contest too!
