Five images from the Worth Valley Railway Winter Steam Gala held over three days from the 9/3/18 to 11/3/18.
The last, for the time being at least, of the images from the Food Festival. This young lady was, I think, the assistant to the guy who was making the balloon sculptures for the kids at the festival.
Yet more photos from the Huddersfield Food and Drink Festival, shots of the cookery demonstration on the temporary stage/kitchen erected in St. George’s Square.
We took our eldest grandkids to the Yorkshire Day Event at Oakwell Hall, Birstall yesterday and these are some shots of a medieval music group who were performing admirably in the courtyard of the visitor centre. Sorry I don’t have the name or any information about the musicians. This event seems to have become an annual one, but seems to be getting smaller year by year. There seemed to be very little there this year, so we didn’t stay very long and took the kids to the Dewsbury Canal Festival instead. It’s a pity, but the Oakwell Hall event seems to be dying, to such an extent that it should either be put out of it’s misery or somehow revived.
A few shots of some of the people taking part in the annual Mayday celebrations in Gawthorpe, Yorkshire. These are black and white photographs of people in the procession that takes place on the first Saturday in May every year.
A shot of the Gawthorpe May Queen from a couple of months ago that I’ve only just got around to doing something with. It’s the same shot processed both as colour and black and white.
Some portraits of participants in the annual Maypole Procession in Gawthorpe, West Yorkshire. The first is a shot of one of the horse riders leading the procession and the remainder …
Some more shots of the the 2015 Coal Race, the last for now. These are a few more images from the women’s race, a couple showing the family and supporters of the competitors giving them encouragement.
Continuing with the Coal Race theme some more photos from the last year’s women’s race. Although the majority of the participants always look to be struggling with the bag of coal very few seem to drop out of the races, most completing the race, encouraged by family and friends.
More images from last year’s Coal Race in Gawthorpe. This time one photo resulting in three different images, hence the Post title, Race Photo Variations. This is a shot of a young woman who looks remarkably happy to say she is running with a bag of coal on her shoulders.
