Roll Up, Roll Up

The blogging of the mega 4 day Easter weekend continues. Let's see, I've covered Thursday night, and prior to that I already covered Friday afternoon and evening, so that brings me to Saturday...

Hot on the heels of the social get together for the Sydney Photobloggers on Thursday night, the group had also planned an outing to the Sydney Royal Easter Show on Saturday afternoon for a group photo shoot.

It was a gorgeous day, warm but not too hot and with a huge big blue sky. After meeting at the train station, we wandered around the show for about 4 or 5 hours in total.

The show is a wealth of photographic opportunity, especially the bright colours and frenetic activity of the sideshows and rides.

We had a look at the dogs, the mostly naff crafts, the prize fruitcake winners and the woodchopping contests - all the mainstays of a day at the show.

Of course we all shot hundreds of shots; of the show, the punters, the food, each other, each other photographing each other... and in one instance it almost go so meta that the universe nearly imploded. Good times.

My full show set is here and Morgan's is here. As of writing there are still photos from the day being uploaded, but if you are interested in seeing the rest of the photos from the day, look for this tag.

Lack of actual clown pics on the blog was appreciated!!! lol. I am still recovering from the others. The idea of going to the Royal Easter Show puts me in a sweat now - at least sideshow alley.

:( Wow, you have serious Clown Issues! They don't really bother me, in fact I kind of like the graphic qualities of clown faces, but you aren't the only one that finds clowns freaky. There's even an anti-clown community!
