This weekend was Oktoberfest all over the place, but for me the local version was held in Mt. Angel. We have gone for the lat 4 years and we generally have a good time. This year was the first time that we had to deal with rain. Most of the time its still pretty warm out, but not this time. It really wasn't cold, but the rain did put a damper on the festivities. Even still, I was able to enjoy a brat worst and snap some photos. I always enjoy seeing all the different people that show up to these events. Regardless of the weather this Oktoberfest didn't disappoint. After culling my photos I started to see a trend with a handful of them. I noticed there were a lot of people that I photographed with their back to me. Not sure exactly why I did this... I guess they were turned around and I simply didn't want to pass on an opportunity. Either way enjoy the photos.
