Photographer's Note

This young lady was so intent on the 'grab a toy' crane machine she was operating I was oblivious to her - her face was a picture and not the easiest image to capture through the body of the machine and it's contents - her friend who had spotted me composing the image was a sport by not alerting her - i just thought this summed up one aspect of the fair - it can re-make a child of us all if we let it.

Not a particularly contrasty subject with the cross lighting and atmospheric effects of the glass but I like images that are not so punchy at times - a nice one for me to play with as a print I think.

My town, Loughborough, has one of the largest old town centre street fairs left in the UK and it's been happening since the 13th century. i've switched from my images of Istanbul at the request of TE member and friend Brendan Head who with his partner Danielle formed a relatively impromptu TE trio at this event. A picture of the two of them in the workshop.

This is dedicated to Claire Vezina who just reminded me that friends are everywhere and that feelings count!!
