I lived in Pleasanton for almost two decades now, and one of my most important childhood memories lie at the fair. Everyone I've met who have no clue where Pleasanton is and what's there, I mentioned the fair - works every time.
It's been a tradition for as long as I can remember, and growing up going every year it's easy to say 'it's boring' or 'there's nothing to do there' but I've come to truly appreciate its annual visit and the few weeks where Pleasanton is actually a place to be in the Bay Area.
Nevertheless, ever since I got into photography I always wanted to shoot long exposure here with all the rides and lights, but never got the opportunity until finally this year. It was a very relaxing night with great friends and the shots came out satisfying. Until next time, Alameda County Fair!
