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, there 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!
