Lincoln Christmas Fair

I gave myself a day off yesterday for Christmas shopping at the Lincoln Christmas Fair. Being completely disorganised and not sure who I needed to buy for let alone what I was going to get them, I spent more time taking photos than I did actually shopping.

It was a lovely day, not too cold,┬áthere was lots of Christmassy food to try and the air was filled with all kinds of Christmassy smells. The entertainment was good and my favourite character was a man standing on a corner in a lit up Christmas hat selling ‘Big tissues.’ It took me an embarrassingly long time to work out the joke.

These are a few of the photos I took at the fair.



The Tendring Show

This weekend I was treated to a day out with my brother at The Tendring Show. I’ve never been to a country show before and relished the opportunity to go to a typically British event with my camera.

There was everything there from a pigeon show, dog agility tests, a pipe band and the usual sheep, goats, cows and horses. Below are a few of the many photos I took hoping to capture a flavour of the day.

I had a great day and may need to investigate entering the art competition next year!
