Pics from around the State Fairgrounds. I haven't been very good about taking photos on the occasions that I've been out there. Today, I made the effort...

I was using the same on both of those, Nikkor 35mm f/1.8, wide open on #10, which I kind of regret now... a tiny bit more DOF would have been nice.

Great to see attendance nearly back to the high when it was last held in Lincoln. 2.5% increase from 2015. Fared much better than the Iowa St fair this year (down almost 8.5% from 2015)

And if you recognize that the last year in Lincoln saw a surge of attendance due to nostalgia, Grand Island has been at Lincoln levels for the past 5-7 years.

Looks like you squeezed a lot into your day as usual, judging by your Flickr collection from Sunday. Nice stuff!
