And the winner is …

Time to pick another Deep Fried Photograph winner from the more than 550 photos that have been posted to the N.C. State Fair Facebook page.  Keep ’em coming if you haven’t already posted yours.

We love taking pictures ourselves and love looking through yours.  They say every picture tells a story, and yours tell us a lot about what you enjoy doing at the State Fair.

For this week’s pick, I have selected this photo by Andrea Akin. Her caption on Facebook was “Flying by Twilight.”  Well said.

A dusky sky is a picture-perfect backdrop for riders on the giant swings and on the Ferris wheel.

The waning daylight gives this photo an interesting feel, but the angle of the photo with the giant swing riders floating above the Ferris wheel makes you pause and take a second look.

Great job on capturing a fun time of day as the fairgrounds transitions from day time to night time.  We’ve got some great 2010 State Fair swag to send to Andrea for having her photo selected.

About Merrie Go Round

Merrie Go Round is the midway alter-ego of Andrea Ashby, who has officially spent 252 days during the past 24 years at the N.C. State Fair. That's perfect attendance in case you were wondering. In addition to promoting the Fair, looking for untold Fair stories and working on various special events, I also spend a great deal of time roaming the grounds taking photos for the Website and State Fair publications. I like to keep my eyes and ears posted for the unusual and different things that make the State Fair such a great celebration of North Carolina people, traditions and history. I look forward to sharing with you the things I come across on my journey.
