Madison County Fair

There’s something nostalgic about visiting the fair at night. The lights, the sounds, and the smells are all so timeless–suddenly I could be back in my own childhood or even that of my grandparents. And maybe it’s the young love blossoming all over the Ferris Wheel, but I always find the atmosphere to be vaguely romantic. It’s like The Notebook  could be filmed right in front of you. At the same time, sadness lurks around the edges. Hints of rural poverty abound, and the workers running the fair seem to survive primarily on cigarettes and the carnival food they sell. What does the fair remind you of? Good things or bad? Would love to hear your thoughts in the comments. ♥ ~SJ
