I only got to attend Comic Con on Sunday, but it was nice to walk through the convention center without too much pressure to get everything in. I’m a veteran here, so I parked far, tram or walk in, and stroll the place photographing cool costumes and people when I see them. I love that they are so gracious with photographers, and always willing to pose for me.

Yelp Elite organized an event at the OC Fairgrounds today. They let us all in to have bites from some of the places inside the OC Fair. Afterwards, we got free admission into the fairgrounds for the day. I wandered through the fair early in the morning and got this much softer and quieter view of the normally insane fairgrounds.

This nice man joined me at the table I was sitting across from this hamburger stand. He asked about my camera, and then told me that this stand belonged to him. He and his wife were so sweet and he even showed me the behind-the-scenes of all these food stands at the fair. They work so hard year around, travelling from fairground to fairground, setting up each time to make this business work.

If you didn’t get the title, you didn’t read Alice in Wonderland as a child. Sarah, with the help of her wonderful sisters Tamara and Dana, threw a wonderful little unbirthday party for her daughter Yara, who just turned 3. The theme was, of course, Alice’s Wonderland, and they went all out. The details are super impressive, from the Mad Hatter tea party centerpieces to the Queen of Hearts biscuits. I had a great time just hanging out with the kids, socializing with old friends, all whist photographing at leisure. The kids are amazing, but it took me awhile to get a good birthday girl pic of Yara. She finally looked straight at me, smiled, and said, “Yara GO!” .. and i pulled the trigger just in time.
