Persimmon Festival - Mitchell, Indiana

Accidentally happened across the 70th Annual Persimmon Festival this year. I was driving through Mitchell, IN after shooting landscape images at Spring Mill State Park for a local health institution and noticed all the traffic and people. I grabbed my Nikon D810 with my newly purchased Sigma 35mm f/1.4 ART lens and walked around for an hour. 

This type of shooting doesn't drain my energy, but rather serves as a source of energy. I love capturing the mundane. The small town. I suppose it helps that I'm from a small town (Springville, IN) so I feel a certain connection to the lifestyle.
