Royal Show 2009

The Royal Agricultural Society has held the Royal Show every year since 1839. In April, organisers announced that 2009 would be the last show. Among the reasons cited for closure were the increased popularity of smaller, specialist shows and loss of revenue due to poor weather in 2007.

I shall miss the show. I had been a few times and always learned something new about rural life, as well as enjoying the challenge of photographing human/animal interaction.
