Shining the Light On This Year's State Fair Memories

We weren't able to get back to you by early October with this post as we had promised, so we're definitely sorry about that.

'Nuff Said

'Nuff Said

But we hope the end result of that delay turns out to be worth it for you.

Keep reading to find out why.

Our first trip this year to the State Fair of Texas was during the middle of the day. The photographic opportunities are quite different in daylight than later in the day.

So we made a second trip to Dallas' Fair Park to take in the Fair the late afternoon and evening.

Last year's State Fair of Texas Gallery site was a customized Urban Gallery space.

This year we chose a smaller, somewhat more intimate space - an Urban Studio where you can basically stand in the center of the space and see every one of the available images.

All of this year's images are different from last year's photographs and include a mix of photos taken during our two visits.

Collectively, they provide you with some idea of the wide tapestry of sights available to fairgoers.

Fair Park's Hall of State and Esplanade

As much fun as it is, the fair only (!) lasts for 24 days each year.

And the 2017 edition of the great State Fair of Texas is now in the books and more than 2 million visitors have returned home with great memories and perhaps a few souvenirs.

But as certainly as the sun rises in the east, Big Tex will rise again and the Fair will be back for another go-round in September 2018.

Do yourself a favor and come to Dallas next fall and take in the sights and sounds of a state fair like no other.

In the meantime, we invite you to create your own photo galleries in Egowall to showcase some of the memorable things you've been doing this year.

Then be sure to share them with your friends so that everyone you know can learn more about The Real You™.

Each living space comes furnished with a default set of furniture items chosen specifically for the space's theme and room layout.

You then personalize the living spaces with other furniture objects, décor items, picture frames and media storage containers filled with your own photo memories.

The customize the overall appearance of the space by changing the colors and materials for the walls, floors, and ceilings. No two Egowall living spaces ever need to look alike.

And if you want ultimate flexibility, use our Outdoor Sandbox space and our expansive set of construction assets to build your own space or creative structure.

To get a sense of what the Egowall living spaces are like, just scroll through the gallery below to see floor plans and screenshots for each one.

Now you can go sign up for a free Egowall account and use one or more of these spaces to tell everyone about your interests and accomplishments.

Then come back here and let us know about your creation(s) so we can celebrate the ways in which you have shown The Real You to the world.

The Moon and Sky Are NOT The Limit

If you are a photographer and want a unique way to showcase your passion for taking pictures, we have a couple of terrific terrestrial spaces that are perfectly tailored to meet your needs.

But if you also have an affinity for outer space and science fiction, we have an even better living space example - one whose screen capture was our most popular Instagram post for the week of August 22-28, 2016.

The Moon Gallery (seen at right) is one of eight Public Spaces currently featured on the Egowall landing page.

First, a little background ...

By default, a living space can only be visited by another member of Egowall.

But you can make any space public so that it can seen by people who have not yet signed up for a free account.

Anyone using a web browser can enter a public space you share.

Now, back to our story ...

Moon Gallery started life as a basic Space Crew Quarters, the smallest of our SciFi-themed living spaces. 

We subsequently turned it into a shrine for a forgotten (by some) period of United States space travel by adding more than two dozen photos of our closest cosmic neighbor - many of which were taken by NASA astronauts themselves.

And then we made it public so that anyone could see it.

Of course, you could start with the same type of space (or one of the other SciFi spaces) and create a totally different sort of commemoration - perhaps for your favorite science fiction television series or movie.

We invite you to visit the Moon Gallery space and check it out for yourself. Think about what you could create to share your particular passions using a service like Egowall.

The sky's the limit.

So to speak.
