Photographer's Note

My visit to the Royal Perth Show was a result of avuncular duties, looking after a teenage nephew and niece while my brother was away. The weather was fine and they wanted to go the show. Every Australian city has one of these - they all started as Agricultural shows, with sideshows, rides and other funfare elements taking second place to the exhibitions of sheep, cattle, chickens, dogs, goats, and all manner of farm and rural life. Anything insitutional in Australia, of sufficiently long standing, is likely to have the term 'Royal' in front of it to honour the British monarch, and in order to establish its importance and bona fide nature!

Gradually the agricultural aspects have given way to the funfare paraphernalia - much lamented by the older generations and country people - and the show seems just as popular as ever, especially with teenage kids looking for thrills on the ever-more stomach-churning rides. To take some shots of these I set the ISO at 800 and the shutter at 1/1600. This one is a crop with some noise reduction applied.
