On the last day of my photo tour with Australian Photo Tours Craig Newell our guide dropped us off at the Colac Show and gave us an hour to come up with a photo essay. We arrived literally at the last hour of the show, with very few visitors remaining. My essay centres around the carnival workers who were starting to pack up and move on to the next country town. There was a palpable feeling of desolation set against a gaudy carnival backdrop. All shots taken with a Pentax K20D with a 28-70 f2.8 lens.
