Lately, I have been fascinated with photographing at night. I am not sure where it came from. Sometimes I am not sure of anything but it seems I always had a bit of a disapointment overtake me when the sun sets. I reluctantly found myself putting away my camera at times when I felt I was just getting warmed up. High speed black and white films were my salvation and I embraced this new theme with a passion. Nowadays, I never go anywhere at night without my camera.
I try do not let the lack of light affect my vision or change my style. I am attracted to the same things that interest my during the daytime. This results in a lot of wasted poorly exposed, blurred shots on my contact sheets but the results sometimes surprise me. I am actually getting used to it. This picture was from the Champlain Valley State Fair in Vermont. I like hanging out here because the food is bad, the people are real and the atmosphere is alive. If I were a better writer, I would describe it in more detail but alas, I am severely limited in this area.
