It has been great fun looking through all the photographs submitted to the N.C. State Fair Facebook fan page. What an array of images, from the iconic Ferris wheel to the deep-fried still-lifes of Oreos, corn dogs and pecan pies.
I had a hard time narrowing down my selection for a winner, but I have chosen this photo by Felicia Price.
The baby chicks are one of my personal favorites at the Fair. I typically take photos in the poultry tent every year because it is a great place to capture the uncontained joy and surprise on the faces of children holding a chick or duckling for the very first time.
In this photo, it seems like it is hard to tell who is more nervous about whom, which makes it cute to me. If I had to put a title on this one, I’d call it “Peers.”
Congratulations to Felicia for a great photo! We’ve got some great 2010 State Fair swag to send Felicia’s way.
