    Not the biggest, but certainly the nicest fair with vintage photo and cine equipment in The Netherlands IMHO. The center area of this little town is completely filled with booths both from private people as well as pro sellers and camera stores cleaning out their stock. It took place last Sunday and I enjoyed the atmosphere and the beautiful weather.

    Your average booth. A Minolta MD Zoom Rokkor 75-200/4.5 on the left.

    Enough to be found for medium-format afficionados. Some nice Nikon rangefinder cameras too.

    Weather change coming up. I only carried the A7 with one lens, the Olympus OM Zuiko 40/2, but fortunately I picked up a very nice sample of the oldest Minolta 28mm and put that to good use here.

    Roof needs work.

    And there's the rain.

    Worried seller, probably because of the water accumulating on the roof. The other guy is checking the shower radar app on his phone, like I did a few times as well :).

    Never mind the weather, the hoarding continues.

    Seeking shelter ...

    but still having a good time.

    I didn't realise at first that last photo was a crop of the previous.

    Hi Ad, Never heard of this fair, tough I live in the Netherlands myself. Where is it? Looks like Doesburg to me. Am I right?

    Indeed, it's in Doesburg. If you're at all into little Dutch towns which have kept their character, this is certainly one of them, situated along the river IJssel which makes for some very nice scenery.
