My name is Alicia and I’m an Ekka addict.
For those who aren’t local, The Ekka’s official name is ‘The Royal Queensland Show’. It’s a huge country fair that takes place over ten days literally in the heart of our city; and we’re not a small city with a population of over 2 million people of which attendance over the ten days is around 600,000.
I went to my first Ekka when I was just 6 weeks old and I have been every year since. I love this time of year as it’s my favourite weather with the cool and crisp mornings but warm and sunny days. Pefect weather teamed with my favourite event that makes me feel like a kid all over again and I’m a happy girl.
In recent years I’ve taken to documenting my trips with photos (2008 photos here , 2009 photos here – wow my style has changed!) and this year is no different. However this is just a small taste of what I have shot. There are definitely more to follow.
So this post is called, “Signs you’re at the Ekka” for a reason. When I was shooting the other day I noticed lots of signs that are totally okay for the Ekka but anywhere else they would be completely out of place. Enjoy the signs!
More Ekka images to come in the next post. 🙂
