Ohio State Fair – Columbus Ohio

Today’s post is primarily people.  A few animals. Or people and animals.  The food highlights will be a separate post.  Stay tuned for a Deep Fried Buckeye.  No, I didn’t eat it but someone let me photograph theirs.

I accompanied two moms and seven children!  We had a wonderful afternoon.   Perfect summer day.  Last year our visit to the fair was cut short by a severe thunderstorm.  If you are new to the blog you can check it out here

Boy on Stilts Early Morning New York City

Stilts are documented from  the 6th century BC in Greece.   Who knew?

 I’ve never walked on stilts, have you?

 I’ve seen them in a gym class somewhere along with a pogo stick or two.  And a clown in a circus when I was small.  

There were a bunch of people on stilts in the St. Patrick’s Day Parade (1979) in Savannah, Georgia as we just watched the stilts walkers in a Super 8 home movie (now on a DVD)  Wonder who sews those tall tall pants to cover those wooden poles.  

Watching the home movie, reminded me of this  stilts walker in NYC. Last Friday morning.

This was shot in the early morning on the way to the parking garage to pick up the car and drive out to Ohio.

Looked like he was walking on rooftops to me.

I had to look twice. Of course, it’s an ad on a building.    Not sure what they are selling.
