Thunderbolt

100 Things to see at the fair #50: Thunderbolt

Summer is heating up and out come the carnival rides! The Thunderbolt is one of those rides that goes faster than you think it will, and if you're expecting a very calm ride, it isn't.

For this ride, I set up the camera to focus in tight on one spot in the sun, and just held down the rapid-fire-take-a-picture-over-and-over mode as the riders kept whizzing by. This mother and daughter consistantly had the best facial expressions each time they passed by and looked like they had the most fun. I take pictures for the state fair and it's easier when everybody is full of joy.
