6 comments on “State Fair of Texas Picture of the Day: Oct. 6

  1. Not every photo is going to be literal. Some will be about the wonderful geometry, repetition, colors and abstractions found at the fair. As someone who hasn’t missed a Texas State Fair in 34 years, I can say that it’s nice to see aspects of the fair on different levels.

  2. It captures the suspense of the life of the balloon, waiting with breath held until some unnassuming child appears, dart in hand, and before the balloon’s general “Oh– what’s that–,” the child’s enthusiasm converts balloon to stuffed toy! Anxious!

  3. Wonder filled spectral display of color. More than cotton candy it is the balloons in the arcade that summon the whole of the fair…okay, now I want to go to the fair!
