Never one of my favorite colors -- unless heavily balanced with matte black, pink cannot help but keep me in mind of those abominable Barbie dolls -- this week's theme is slightly more palatable, if you will, as the subject of this photo. In recent years cotton candy (aka candy floss) has branched out into pastel blue and white, but those tints seem like impostors to me.
This shot was taken last fall at the annual Western Washington State Fair (aka "The Puyallup," for the town it is held in, an otherwise rather personality-free rural burg). This is one job I have never had, which I might have deemed rather romantic as a teenager but now clearly recognize as a nightmare. Remind me to tell you about my gig at the crab processing plant. But I digress.
Here's another shot from the same day, at the taffy booth. These empinked gals more accurately reflect the workaday vibe, I think.
However, the proof is in the, er, pudding.
