Had this been my local town, there would have been blankets all over the sidewalk and lawn chairs "reserving" spaces for last-minute arrival attendee's. ;)

This is about as old time as I get

FJ, I think this kind of thing is a novelty to a lot of people. But to the people who've lived here for years, it's a pretty big deal. I used to scoff at it, but now I really enjoy it. :-) I'm getting older.

Duck, you'd love this thing. It starts off with a parade at 9 am, and goes until 6 pm. Tons of AMAZING food sold by local family vendors. Oh...the BBQ brisket. (I had it for lunch AND dinner.) And the kids just run and play all day. They get so excited to see their friends out like that, and have so much freedom. The streets are blocked off so everyone's more relaxed. It's pretty cool. And the "eccentrics" come out...which is my favorite part. ;-)

Nice shot of the phone booth! I never see them anymore.

When I was a kid, the town of Milpitas, CA used to host a weekend called "Frontier Days" when everyone dressed up in old clothes, and a carnival set up rides. I always enjoyed it.

I still remember these tokens.

Very cool, like these photos.

Your street photography is getting more interesting, Jen, especially those last two shots.

...on the photographer. ;)

Thanks, Ducky.

FJ, I have that song playing in my earbuds when I go out with my camera. ;-)

...sometimes I just stop and dance.
lol

Thersites said...

Ditto! ;)

Jen, the contrast black/white is astonishing...so crisp, so clear.
These are excellent...
I'm THERE as I watch the images!

Thanks, Z. I have been using a different camera lately and I'm really enjoying it. My film development still has a LONG way to go, though.
