More merriment than you can shake a stick at!!!
Once again Rochester’s annual Sweeps festival is back full of all the characters, noise and beer its famous for.
Merry men and women dancing, The Bruncles and a winged steampunkette caught my eyes this year. Enjoy
Again RevPro pulled it out of the bag and it’s probably the best one I’ve seen to date. Seems York Hall really has got a massive presence once it’s packed to the walls with fans, noise and fighters! My second time there and although I was not as close to the front as last time I still could not resist snappin a few quick shots. I have to admit it I’m proper back into wrestling now.
Big thanks to all the recent subscribers from the world of wrestling on Twitter. Your comments and reposts have been gratefully received, Glad you enjoy the snaps. Peace
In memory to all who gave so much.
This year we took a trip to Belgium to visit the key sights of the Battle of the Bulge also known as the “Battle of the Ardennes”. It was a powerful trip to say the least, to visit the graves, memorials and towns that held some of the bloodiest battles in World War 2. To find the trenches softly reclaimed by nature in what felt like an enchanted forests in Foy left me wondering how it could have been a part or the dreaded Siegfried Line. To think soldiers were hiding down in these dug outs to avoid gun fire and bombardment from shelling brought us a very different perception on how they lived throughout the campaign. It was quite a chilling image against what was to me one of the most peaceful and calming places I had every seen in my life. Over the next few weeks I shall be posting many of the images I took during our 4 day tour through the Ardennes. Thank you and enjoy.

Recently a billboard has been removed from the side of a property in on Maidstone road Rochester. When it was taken down there appeared to be posters from the 1950s behind it but sadly they were torn straight off the wall by the workmen. What looks like layers upon layers of posters I managed to get one shot of what was left. Persil. I’ve googled Persil adverts and although I could not find the exact match there advertising campaigns followed a theme that changed with the times making it very easy to find the decade. Wish I’d had the chances to separate and photograph them.
One of a few shots to come from a lovely weekend stroll with good friends.
