before the carnival opens.

Just down the street from where I live, a carnival is being put up. This is my favourite time of a carny - the building of it. Before any life is put into it, all these colourful/playful objects are just sitting there - waiting. It's somewhat eerie and altogether awesome!

My goddaughter Astrid and my dear friend Karen decided we had to take a peek at the goings on. Astrid & I took our myriad of cameras (Polaroids, Diana, and digital) to see what we could capture.
Here are a few of my favourite shots of 'before the carnival opens':




Astrid posing as a tourist (with her Polaroid strapped on)!

Karen having a sip of a giant slurpy!

My Polaroid OneStep had fun, too!

I might actually try going to the actual 'live' carny, if its open to the public. I want to go on the ferris wheel, eat cotton candy & win a stuffed toy.

  1. If this is the same carnival that I think it is, it is open to the general public around six on friday.

    At least that's when I'm going.
    It could be open soooner.
