Every year in September our little Market Town shuts down as the fair comes to town. It’s amazing to see as the Fair is held against the backdrop of Tudor houses & everyday shops. Our little high street is literally closed off from one end to another, and the car park, market and other areas are transformed into a full on street fair.
It’s part of Thame’s very long tradition. The Oxfordshire & Thame County Show takes at the Showground on Thursday & as this closes the fair in the town opens, leaving early hours of Sunday morning.
Cycling into school as the fair was setting up on Thursday morning, I thought the Little Shires would burst with excitement. By the time went on Friday afternoon they were virtually delirious with happiness!! We spent a large fortune but it is only once a year *ahem!*
All the fun of the fair is fast paced, 100 mph and in multi-coloured technicolour, but when put into B&W I personally think the photos are more focused & you focus on the subject. Either way, we had fun!
As always, as I tiptoe into the world of B&W photography I’d appreciate your thoughts on how I’m doing!
I’m linking with Charly @ PODcast and her #BWPhotoProject – she really does have some seriously gorgeous photography & some clever tips on how to get better in monochrome

I'm Tracey, nice to meet you. Mummyshire was 'born' three years ago after we moved from London to the Oxford countryside. Here I chart our journey adjusting to our new lives, the challenges of being in the countryside & surviving parenthood.
