So I slapped on the 70-200mm on my 5d and walked around the event...nothing really interesting. So I just took some shots of our party while looking for something to buy in the craft fair. There were crafts in every booth, and endless supplies of food and drink. Basically you never run out of something made from blueberries such as donuts, pies, shakes, etc. in an event like that...that's why it's called the blueberry festival, duh. There was a booth where they had birds of prey. I took some shots there too. Nothing really fancy. We then walked around and I saw the carnival!
Since I got my 17mm lens a day before we left for blueberry festival, I haven't really had the chance to try it out. Here's my chance, as I see a huge ferris wheel and some crazy slides. I got so excited that I took the 70-200 off and put the 17mm on, that thing felt really light compared to that beast! I then started to take shots of the rides and the booths.
At that place we have a beautiful view of a creek in the backyard of the house. I still had my 17mm on so I started shooting the beautiful landscape. Most of the day I enjoyed taking pictures of everything especially with my new 17mm lens.
The next day I was eager to see the skateboard/bmx competition at the festival. It rained hard in the morning so we weren't able to be there to see it. Bummer.
At the end of the festival we ended up watching a labor day parade. I had my 70-200 IS USM lens the whole time. Parades are fun because you can take pictures of different people wearing different costumes, riding different cars...etc.
It was a very nice trip! Came home with around 400 shots in my cards.
