In October I will feature foliage photographs


My friend Wes Lavin is a better photographer than me.
Firstly, he has better equipment than me.
Secondly he travels all over New England just to take pictures in different seasons.
Most of my photographs are closer to home, and I'm not really into photography
Wes in into photography as a retired school teacher

These are some of the many 2016 photographs that Wes took at the Turbridge Country Fair in Vermont
A sampling of his work is shown below

Turbridge World's Fair --- https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tunbridge_World%27s_Fair

The Tunbridge World's Fair is an annual event held in mid-September in Tunbridge, Vermont. The annual fair continues to this day with demonstrations of farming and agricultural traditions and culture, working antique displays, horse and ox pulling, horse racing, cattle and horse shows, junior exhibits, floral and 4-H exhibits, contra dancing, gymkhana, and many free shows.

The Tunbridge World's Fair began in 1867 and has been held yearly for 145 years. The first eight fairs were held in North Tunbridge, Vermont, while the following have been held in Tunbridge.[2] The fair is currently chaired by Alan Howe,[3] who took over from Euclid Farnham after the 2009 fair. Farnham had been president of the fair for over 30 years, and had made major efforts to change the fair from a "drunkards reunion," with soft-porn shows and unlimited alcohol, to a more family-friendly environment.[

My Grandmother Jensen became a widow when my dad was two years old
She raised five boys by herself on a farm in Kossuth County, Iowa
In the picture below my dad is on the the right when he was still a teenage boy
I loved my days on that farm with horses, cows, hogs, sheep, goats, and chickens
The only heat was an iron stove, and water had to be hauled from the barn in buckets
The outhouse wasn't the greatest with Sears catalog pages used for toilet paper


This is my grandmother years ago at the Kossuth County Fair
In the picture below she's demonstrating how to spin wool yarn on a spinning wheel using foot power
Her specialty in retirement was knitting warm mittens for her grandchildren (like me)


My grandmother was a young child  (named Thompson) when she immigrated to Iowa prairie from their home in Norway shown below
Family Legend:  They moved to the USA when small-boat fishing was deemed too dangerous in the rough and frigid waters of Norway
