Ahhhh, carnival time by the beach! You know summer is just about here as the ferris wheels and other rides erect overlooking the city/beach. Its quite incredible, a town (Holland MI) about a half hour from me is plastered with all sorts of festivities. No matter where you go in the city there are Elephant Ear booths, kids running around with Cotton Candy (my fav!) with the parents to follow running after their sugar induced preteens that are off to the next ride or attraction.
I was accompanied again by my buddy Kelly, who just recently picked up photography as a hobby as well. We prowled the streets and shore, getting attacked by birds (true story!! They were vicious), grabbing each interesting scene until he ran out of film and I ran out of battery life (tip: check your batteries before you go out haha). Before that happened however I managed to run through my 8 gig card capturing some wonderful scenes, like this Coffee Wagon and its owner.
There were a TON of snack vendors outside this carnival, yet this dudes shop was the coolest of them all. Unfortunately I had no cash on me in order to get a tea or anything to help fund his caffeine induced wagon. However I did get this pic, which I was plenty excited about grabbing, giving me a nice burst of energy to carry on the many miles we walked through the rest of the nights shooting.
