Blowin’ Up The Spot

Many people enjoy the fair for the food and the rides.  I don’t care about eating a chocolate covered banana or a deep fried snickers bar.  I like the people watching and the lights.  If you want to throw down 30 bucks on food and 30 bucks on rides, you’ve found the right place.  This year, I posted up and shot photos instead of participating in throwing my money away.

Take It To The Press

Its pretty few and far between when you come across a working letterpress.  My buddy Rich was kind enough to show me the ropes.  I never realized how endless the options were when working on a letterpress.  It is quite a unique and personal experience.  If you have ever been interested in any type of printing and have never been to a letterpress, I suggest you find one.
