Auckland - The Easter Show revisited

More years ago than I care to think about I made pictures at Auckland's Easter Show. The event then and now is a strange urbanized derivative of the delightful small country town Agricultural and Pastoral show with prizes for best of this and that animal, art and craft contests, best of pumpkins, tomatoes, and rhubarb plus the fun of the side-shows. There is still all of that, prize bulls and sheep (although no vegetable contests). Most else is high energy escapism with a large helping of kitsch. It's the Easter Show of then on speed.



And some portraits I made this visit:
