Tall Ships at Sunderland ~ July 2018 ~ part 2

Part 1 Here

Part of the joy in photographing a big event like this, is people watching, and there were plenty of interesting humans for my camera.

Say ‘cheeeeeeze!’ Wait, no, say ice creeeeeem!

  4. I love the lady in the flowered dress, in ‘where do I start?’ The ‘Silver Surfers’ made me laugh because I am in an online group with that name! I always think it should really be called ‘white surfers’, because my hair hasn’t been silver for years. 🙂
    The ‘ZZ Top’ photographer is a ubiquitous look. I am sure I have seen him (or his double) over on Hoe Rough.
    Best wishes, Pete.

      1. Have you read “the Great War and Modern Memory”? It’s a great place to start if you’d like to learn more about WWI literature especially.
