One of two three-shot photobooths at the Orange County, this black and white booths takes nice, big photos that are crisp with deep tones. I had spent enough time in the booths to require some squeezed lemon refreshment. Apparently the supply of paper wide enough for the three-shot strips is running out, and this booth is likely to be converted to a four-shot booth by next summer.

Note that this booth as well as all others listed for the Orange County Fair are only present during the fair's run each summer. In 2007, all booths were $5, requiring a token bought from an attendant. The booths were set up in three groups: near the front entrance (11 booths) which I've named group "A"; near the petting zoo (6 booths) group "B"; and near the Family Fair Way, group "C." The numbers correspond to each booth's location in the group, left to right.

UPDATE 8/15/22: Julia reports that the booths at the O.C. Fair have gone digital, fair-wide, ending a long tradition of beautiful analog booths.
