My first experience of the lincolnshire show was not disappointing at all, in fact there was a lot more to it than what i was expecting! Usually I plan days out to the extent of I know exactly what’s there, where i want to go/ what i want to see etc but with this i just kind of winged-it, partly due to not knowing whether i would be working or not so when I found out I was free to go, I just looked up bus times and went.
It was a brilliantly sunny day which I’m very thankful for, as my images came out great it was one of those occasions where I just picked up my camera before hand- it wasn’t an event that I planned to document; I just wanted a few shots of my day out and of my first visit to the show. Instead I came home with a full memory card of everything from horse riders to vintage steam engines and everything in between: Such as wooden sculptures crafted my a man with a chainsaw in less than 20 minutes, target practice with air rifles, sleepy pigs, combine harvesters, a marching band and a jousting tournament. The only unfortunate aspect of my day was my little sunburnt nose.
Other than this, the usual cinema going working and crafting. I am also looking into getting more exposure- not just using competitions but looking at selling landscape prints, where I can exhibit, funds/ grants I can get etc so saul goode and I’m planning on photographing the olympic torch when it arrives next week too!
