Salute to the forties

Yesterday saw our second club outing of the season to The Historic Dockyard Chatham for the Salute to the Forties.

The event provides an opportunity to photograph a range of civilian and military re-enactors and vehicles from the wartime period. The weather stayed dry and, for the most part, overcast, making it great for outdoor photography.

It was good to see people of all ages entering into the spirit.

Not just people, but pets too.

There were two stages set up with a number of very good performers giving renditions of tunes from the era.

I got chatting to Mickie Driver just before he took to the stage and he kindly agreed to pose for me.

Our next outing is on the 7th October to Rye.

Faversham Hop Festival

We had our first club outing of the season last Saturday to the Faversham Hop Festival. These events are great for candid street photography with many people dressed up and willing to pose for a photograph.

Although not popular with the 'PC' brigade, the kids were captivated by the Punch & Judy show.

It's always worth trying something a little different and the shot below captures the movement of the dancers.

We look forward to seeing some more members at our forthcoming trips.
