Funfair Lister Park Bradford

Funfair Lister Park Bradford

I suddenly realised what a great chance to get some photographs the funfair in Lister Park, Bradford, Yorkshire might be.

Above in the photograph you can see 3 young Polish girls having fun, the machine was spinning really fast and I only managed one decent picture of them. Normally I would name them in this blog, however I had not taken a pen to the fair and between the four of us there was none.

The fair is on 9 Apr 2009 - 14 Apr 2009 in
Lister Park
North Park Road,
off Manningham Lane

I have been interested in photography since I was a boy I used to have a funny little russian camera. Later I got an OM1 and used to develop and print pictures too. My interest dwindled almost to nothing these last few years although I bought an Olympus E-500 2 years back but untill the last few months I mostly photographed things with my mobile phone.

This blog has reignited my interest in photography and I have taken more photographs in the last couple of weeks than in the previous 10 years. I had never before taken photographs like the above with low light and moving subjects before, but I think they are not too bad and indeed quite like the results.

I have been helped recently by my good friend photographer Lorne Cambell whose pictures appear regularly in the national press. Lorne is a very good photographer and he has been kind and encouraged me and shown me how good my camera is when used by someone who knows what they are doing.


  1. They are really good action shots that capture the atmosphere of the fun fair, you are right to be pleased :)

  2. You really captured the excitement, Paul!
