I was warned to be careful in going up to Cahirmee Horse Fair in Buttevant, armed with a camera and a couple of lenses. I needn’t have worried at all, along with the ‘Fair Girl‘ there were others asking for their images to be recorded and all were good craic and enjoying the fair. It’s like with anyone, treat them with a bit of respect ……..
The first picture shows a group of four horse traders that I chatted to and wanted their group picture taken. If you are looking at this and are one of the four, thank you so much.
In the second picture which I have entitled ‘The Pinky Ring’ this youth was shouting for his photo to be taken as he trotted down on this rather undersized pony. It’s a pity the shadows were so strong. At first I was reluctant to put this picture on the blog, due to its stereotype image, but then it was the pose that he struck, that he wanted to express. Like all these subjects he was excellent.
