Pour one out for the Texas State Fair: it had a rough weekend. Hours after Big Tex turned into The Wicker Man, the Midway Stratosphere ride lost power. A couple dozen riders were dangling above the earth on a motionless, two-hundred foot tall ride for a couple of hours. Dallas-Fire Rescue manually lowered the ride around 11:20 p.m., but not before photographer Justin Terveen--who was already on hand to nab a shot of Big Tex's visage--could grab a photo of the stranded Fair-goers.

This would have most certainly sucked to be stuck on.

Is there anywhere that Justin is not at? Best pics in Dallas from that man.

Gives literal meaning to just hanging out for a couple hours...
