A Thing I Love About the State Fair: #peopleandtheirprizes

You don't even have to go to the Fair to enjoy it.

It’s opening day for another edition of the State Fair of Texas. There will be a parade in downtown at noon, and someone booting from too many corny dogs and beer by, say, 2. It’s a grand tradition.

One thing I love about the Fair, that you may not know about, is #peopleandtheirprizes, a series of photos on Instagram by Amanda Pounds, aka @amandalbs. She’s been doing these for the past two years or so. It’s a great slice of life, not just from the Midway but in general, and most people look so happy in them, clutching their stuffed animals and often a loved one. Plus: it costs zero coupons, and you don’t have to leave the comfort of your phone.
