L.A. County Fair #1

The L.A. County Fair opened today. I used to go every year but haven't been for the last two. Mostly I would just hit the bungalows for the shopping because more times than not I would go buy myself since I just live down the street. This year I did something I don't normally do, I visited the area with all of the animals - pigs, goats, sheep, cows, horses. And I did something I never do - I left the bungalows and shopping alone. :-) I did my usual when I have my camera - too many pics to post now I have to pic out some favorites so this will come in several posts as I go through them and downsize them for posting.




These were a couple of sheep after they had been sheared.



A white turkey! I've never seen one. I wonder if there are naturally white ones or if these are albino and rare. I guess I could look it up but I'm tired and a little lazy right now.

A fun outing, I'm sure...got some wonderful pics it looks like too. I'm sorry I'll be missing Floyd's fair this year, but since it's because I'll be in Utah, I guess I'm not too upset :-)

MrsNesbitt - I'm so glad you enjoyed the post. :-)

June - Thank you. It was fun. I think you're right and a trip beats a fair any day. :-)

Jayne - That was one of my favorite shots. I did an "awwwww..." while I took it. :-)

These are all beautiful photos but I especially love the second one with the sheep. I can tell that all these amazing creatures are starting to influence your interests! :-)

Rod - Thank you. I love that sheep one too.

Me Ann My Camera - Thank you. Actually, I just love taking pics. If it's a good subject matter I'm there. Being a city girl I tend to see flowers more than the animals. :-)

Denise said...

Awwww, photos are fantastic. Wish I could have been there too. I love being around animals and you did a wonderful job of capturing their cuteness.
