Painting on the Plaza and a fair day

The Alachua County Fair is going on right now through Sunday. They expect 35,000 through the week, but when I went to shoot Monday night, there were maybe a few hundred people there. As an adult, there really wasn't much to do. The ride I photographed above was one of the few that could be enjoyed by big people.

This was a really fun find while walking back to the office from a class. Nicholas Cravey is the student whose shadow is projected onto the sheet from the other side. He said he set the sheet up on the plaza because he was bored and you have to do something with that time. I'd say this was definitely a better use of his time than throwing down on NCAA 10 or Halo. The size of the canvas attracted people passing through the plaza, who he invited to paint with him.
