Norwood Fair (and photo workshop)

01_merry_go_roundAh, the Norwood Fair.

An annual outing for me and for many.

With Merry-go-rounds …

02_taffy_pullAnd taffy pulls …

03_tractor_manAnd tractor pulls …

I can’t miss the colour, the animals and the atmosphere.

04_senior_precisionThis year I caught the “Senior Women’s Precision Drill” put on by Stillbrook Riding Stables.

The average age of the women in this demonstration is 63 years.

05_senior_precisionI got a bit teary eyed as they rode their pattern and hoped that, at 63 and older, I will be doing just this thing.

06_ferris_ridesAnd, of course, there are rides at the fair.

07_ferrisI’d never been on the ferris wheel at Norwood Fair.

08_fair_from_aboveThis year I went up.

09_fair_groundsSuch a great view of the fair grounds, the rides, the midway and the beautiful fall landscape beyond Norwood.

10_heavy_horseAnd, as always, I go to see the horses.

I put up a post last year of the heavy horse pull; one of my favourite events.

This year I spent a bit more time checking out the giant beasts in the trailering area.

11_heavy_horsesSo huge. So handsome. So lovely.

And just in case you were wondering how they move those giant one tonne pumpkins…

Oh, and I’m giving my three part photography workshop again this year in November. If you’ve ever wanted to hone your photography technical skills, here’s a friendly and affordable opportunity.
