Country Fair

On the way to the Masterton Airshow we stopped at the Gladstone School fair. This school in a small country settlement was founded in 1876. It was times with a local scarecrow competition, and judging by the amount of cars in the parking area very well attended.

I just love taking shots of people enjoying themselves. While it would be a temptation to use a longer lens all of these images are shot on 24-70mm.
