Street Photography in Old St. Charles

I am still learning what my new Sony mirrorless camera can do (haven’t found the silent shutter button yet) and sometimes I score and sometimes I miss… but that happens now and again to all of us regardless of how long a time we’ve had our cameras.  We had just left the pub and had walked a bit north when I decided the more unique older buildings were south of the pub; meaning we turned around.  Most of the people on the street that day were tourists and nothing spoke to me until I saw this couple walking up the street.

While it isn’t the ideal composition I was going for (refer back to the still learning the new camera) I wanted to share it because they were such a unique couple.  He looks as if he came right from working on the farm or some carpentry site and she reminds me of someone from the 1940’s.  It’s not the best photo as far as sharpness and no body parts cut off but I feel they are quite the special couple.

Freeze!

I think we’ve been spotted 😉

We had just left the peach orchard and were taking the long way around (which meant nothing but farms as far as we could see) to get to the highway that would take us home when DH suddenly stops and pulls over and says “LOOK!”  Mind you, I was looking straight ahead at an interesting barn when this happened.  He points to my right and I say “So it’s a couple of deer statues?”  After a minute or two the statues began to move cautiously.  I rolled the window down and leaned over a bit to get this shot.

Wonder where mom was?

Food at the Fest

You just cannot have hundreds and hundreds of people gathered to have fun without food and drink.  There were so many options to choose from ranging from the traditional fair food to more unique offerings.  We all know that corn dogs are one of the most traditional foods found at events like this but never have I seen it offered from a pink castle and dragon.

Of course there was beer and here is a view from the main food street.  Fried Swiss cheese, hmm.

Food trucks parked inside of the park were offering goodies like Ribman here; wish I had gone back to get something from them because they had some goodies on their menu I haven’t had in a long time.

And then there was the well known (and well patronized by students from OSU for one) pizza from Late Night Slice.  Gotta love the slogan on the truck 😉
