CMMC August Pick a Topic

I ventured* out to the Iowa State Fair Wednesday morning with camera in hand – early enough to avoid standing in any lines. This sand sculpture was being constructed at the entrance to Thrill Ville. Is that hog in the back longing to ride the Ferris wheel?

When the bright morning light on these benches caught my attention, I figured a picture for the archives was in order for some future photo challenge. With all the lines in it, I decided it fits Cee’s Midweek Madness Challenge August Pick a Topic from her Photo! (See her photo and read about the challenge here.)

My plan had been to remain outdoors. But when the Agriculture Building opened, I couldn’t resist going inside.

What’s more Iowa than corn? Not only is the corn all lined up, the shelving dividers create lines, and there are lines in the architecture (ceiling and poles).

Before heading to the Fair, I’d glanced ahead for the next CMMC color challenge. The color of the lines in the squash will meet that challenge but I couldn’t resist sharing this photo today.

*Though fully vaccinated, feeling healthy, and, as far as I know, not carrying the coronavirus, I did what I could to stay safe and keep others safe as the delta variant continues to spread: paid to park at the fairgrounds (rather than ride a bus), arrived as the gates opened (before most of the other 91,510 others who were there that day), practiced physical distancing as much as possible (no standing in line and no sitting to watch a show), wore a mask, and left by mid-morning.
