A Word in your Ear: Context – The A & P Show, Hastings 2013


Good morning from a sunny Hastings.  I hope everyone is keeping warm or cool wherever they may be with this crazy weather we are having at the moment.

This week’s challenge byA Word in Your Ear is context.  Normally I don’t show photos of people but decided that this was appropriate for this challenge.  These photos were taken last October at our annual local produce show which we call the A & P show – Agricultural and Pastoral/Produce show.  This is a typical quintessential New Zealand image above.  Hunky young men in black singlets and gumboots or big boots building fences in a competition.


Then walking around we come across some alpacas –


Finally I found this man and his son very intent on videoing the actions of this machine cutting up large logs of wood for firewood.


They stood there for quite some time, totally engrossed in the machine.

Here are some other great blogs.




Thanks for visiting.

    1. It goes over 4 days. The first day, Wednesday all the school children have free entrance and we always have a public holiday for the Friday so that it is packed. I just went to take photos – as you do. 😀


      1. Good for you. 😀 I can’t take any photo’s with people around me. They make me self-conscious and the only person I like taking photo’s of is hubby when he is flyfishing. 🙂
