This week was a scorcher for Whatcom County. Temperatures hit high 80's and boy did they feel like it. So what would say hot summer days better than a picture of a kid eating shaved ice? I went to the Northwest Washington Fair in Lynden last Saturday and Sunday to get some shots of people people setting up. Then on Monday and Wednesday I was sent back to capture scenes from the event. At the beginning of the week, I told my editor that shooting the fair wasn't my favorite thing to do, but as the week went on I realized I just didn't like going at noon. The afternoons proved to be more relaxed and might I add "cooler." Pun intended.
