World's Fairs typically were used by the hosting city as a reason to develop an urban site that was previously unused. Some of these sites were marshes, forests, or simply sprawling fields.

There I was, brand new entry-level dSLR in hand, ready and willing to learn, expecting to come home with a memory card full of great pictures. All you need to do is use a fast shutter speed, right?
