Bingley Show

By LynneJoyce  
At last I have been able to upload all the photographs in this set, photos from my day off from Nightmare Central on Saturday, a visit to Bingley Show with my friend Sylvia. Rain all day was forecast (obligatory for Bingley Show) so I didn't bother to apply sunscreen. Instead I donned my flowery waterproof coat and matching wellies. The rain abated at around lunch time and there followed a gloriously sunny afternoon ay the end of which I was sunburned. Sunburned in Bingley, West Yorkshire, I kid you not!

The show was fun and I got lots of photos with the ever reliable and easy to carry Sony because I didn't fancy carrying the posh camera kit through the mud. I would have liked to have the macro lens with me but honestly, I think it is damned near impossible to get a bad shot with the Sony.

In the afternoon we found a bench to rest my boiled feet (hot sun + wellies = bad idea) and watched the falconry display. There I would have liked to have the long lens but whatever. The falconer was amazing. He engaged all the kids there present in games. He made them form a human tunnel and got the Barn Owl to fly through it. He made them lie down in a line and got the Harris Hawk to fly low over them so that the Jessie's touched them all. Then most enjoyed by all, he got them to race against the Harris Hawk. As Sylvia so astutely observed, those kids will never forget those magical experiences.

Anyway here is a selection of images that represent just some of the events at the show. I hope that you enjoy viewing them as much as I enjoyed taking them. Sorry I can't view and comment on your images much but since my mother is also dying in the same nursing home as Garrath, and there is no wifi there, it is near impossible.

Happy clicking guys.

What a grand collection-- all so well done and a pleasure to view--
I think your narrative re: the bird show takes the A= over the images! Thanks for both!

I think of you often!
