The Cambridge County Show, Parker's Piece - 14th June 2008

It's a Saturday in Cambridge, and as we wander in to town we spot that there seems to be some sort of agricultural show occuring on Parker's Piece. It turns out to be the Cambridge County Show, and it whiles away a few hours as we look at mediaeval sword fights, piggies and some steam engines.

A traditional side-show is in effect: Kondini does something with chains

Kondini - 'The human tool-box' - stands on nails

The scene on Parker's Piece, looking towards the University Arms hotel

A couple of saddle-back pigs

A cute brown piggy looks up

A hairy guitarist and flautist play folk music

A knight of the occasional table

A swordfight in progress

Pointy swords and pikes

More sword-fighting

The fight is joined

A mini traction engine ferries some kids around

Nosher's old family firm (well, maybe)

A bloke and his engine

A barn owl

This owl looks more than a little hacked off

The detail from the Pentax K10D with a 23-year-old Vivitar 135mm lens is quite impressive

Some sort of beardy owl

More owl action

Back at home, Cat lounges about on an up-ended sofa
