Wartime in the Vale 2019
A selection of photographs taken on the 2nd day of the event (Sunday 16th June).   This collection is quite small when compared to previous years as I didn't aim for as great a coverage of the event as I had done previously.

Well, I can't fault this year's event brochure for errors as there didn't appear to be a brochure!   This means though, that I had to rely either my own knowledge or other sources for exhibit identification, and quite how successful I am with this remains to be seen.   The weather, which had been very wet in the days leading up to the event, was at least mostly dry, with some sunny intervals (if the weather had been better, I might well have dropped this in favour of the Eckington Open Gardens event).

I suspect that this will be the last time I do this event, at least for a couple of years anyway.   I feel that I've got to the point where I'm just photographing the same exhibits over and over again, and if there is anything new on show, it's difficult and time-consuming to identify (especially if there is no documentation provided by the event organisers).   Again, I'm glad I had no official status on this event, as I can't help feeling that I might have quit in disgust.
