I loved festivals when I was a little girl. I loved the blurred motions, all the bright lights and the fusion of colors. Yesterday, I realized, I still love those same things. My friend, coworker and the amazing photographer behind NewVintage Photography, Jennifer Howell, and I went to the festival during our lunch hour — before the carnies were too drunk and the crowds too thick.
The sound of the merry-go-round and the smell of Lockeford sausage make everything seem a little slower in the world that can sometimes get spinning a little out of control.
Here are some of my rookie photos, but you should check out Jen’s. She has a great eye for all things beautiful and she knows how to work magic on every photo she touches.
