We had a grand last-day at the Royal Adelaide Show on September 11th 2010. I’ve not been in a few years, so I am glad we chose a sunnier day to visit.
Our two nieces enjoyed 30-minutes waiting at the front of the queue (only to be given 3-free-tickets just before the ticket-stations opened for the morning), being shaken about by a few rides, getting a couple of show-bags and being with Uncle Stephen for a day!
Here are just six of the few hundred photographs I shot throughout the day, now available to view, peruse and purchase from my Redbubble photo gallery:
