From where I stood, I couldn’t hear what the dairy goat judge was saying, but I spotted the Show’s latest red ribbon winner leaning in for a kiss.
I quickly framed the shot and pressed the shutter button, and to be honest, at the time I thought I’d just missed it. It’s capturing these spontaneous moments that make photography so rewarding.
The Perth Royal Show 2013 is on from 28 September to 5 October. You can catch the dairy goats at the Show for most of the week. Stay tuned for more Royal Show-themed short stories this week – see the Royal Show short stories:
