Sugar and spice and all things nice

11 Oct

Hull Fair has two parts; the big expensive rides and smaller stalls where you can shoot yourself a prize or hook-a-duck and so on these are all congregated off Walton Street. On Walton Street itself there is a long line of stalls selling food, burgers, Indian take-aways, fish and chips and so on are all there for the taking but there also lots of sweet stalls selling what is essentially sugarĀ  in various disguises. For some reason Margot took a lot pictures of these so here’s her view.

Margot dared me to post this. If you want to create a space around yourself in a crowd just take out a doll and photograph it; folk steer clear for some reason, can’t think why.

All the fun of the Fair …

Early October in this town can mean only one thing: Hull Fair. Yes it’s that time of year again when the air is filled with the distant rumble of machinery, extremely loud music and the faint aroma of burnt cow meat and onions wafts across from Walton Street. So here’s a small selection of shots from the other night. I seem to have left my colours at home so you’ll have to use your imagination…

Hull Fair again

13 Oct
So another year has passed and it’s Hull Fair once again and as last year was so exciting we decided to try it again. But as the old Greek says you cannot step into the same river twice it was not so fun filled this second time around. Still we took far too many pictures and stayed a good deal longer than we were intending.
