Amherst Fair Night

Sean (S.P. Sullivan), who has the real story at Masslive.com, and I went out to shoot photographs of the Amherst fair Friday night. Here are some of the photos I took. Check out the thumbnails or view a slideshow of more.

Dusk approaching and food to enjoy.

Games to play, of course.

My favorite photo I took that night.

Scary rides!

The Scrambler!

Under maples on a cool night.

Photos of the Days

I realized I labeled the photo of the day for May 5, 2010 as May 6. So the picture of my cute kitten is actually for May 5. Here are my photos of the last few days – which I would upload sooner if it wasn’t for dial-up Internet that doesn’t allow me to upload photos, or even send emails these days.

Chocolate cake - well I guess it's really a tart.

Two male ducks. A macro lens would have made this photo more interesting, as I should keep distance from animals.

Kilroy in the Valley

Since I keep my eyes open for the hard-to-see. Check out this graffiti, which can be seen in Amherst and Northampton (if it hasn’t been removed).

I first saw this tag at UMass Amherst in the spring.

This is what the tagged area looks like as of this week.

The tag “MGK,” the phrase “Kilroy was here,” and the image of Kilroy Was Here appear to be connected.

I Googled MGK. Those letters could stand for anything, or nothing at all. I’ll list a few: insecticide products, Machinegunkeyboard.com, Machine Gun Kelly, Mightygodking.com, the McLaughlin Gormley King Company, MGKrecords.net, or a Mega Growing Kit, .

The meaning behind Kilroy is an interesting read, however.

According to the editor of Kilroywashere.org, Kilroy started as a graffiti-like doodle.

Most of the information on Kilroy War Here, or, perhaps James J. Kilroy, a WWII shipyear inspector, is considered legend, according to Kilroywashere.org.

I haven’t discovered who is making the Kilroy references, and I don’t know who MGK is.

Matt Pilon of The daily Hampshire Gazette wrote this article on two males who were arrested for graffiti vadalism, or were going to be committing the act.

Kilroy appears “everywhere” today. Even gracing the title of a Styx album. So, keep your eyes peeled.
