Johnny Depp eat your heart out!
Here's another picture from Ovingham Goose Fair.
This little fellow took part in the Fancy Dress competition. With a lolly in one hand and a pistol in the other, he was clearly prepared for whatever adventures the Fair might throw his way.
Ovingham Goose Fair is a real, traditional village occasion, at once fun and silly, earnest and worthy. There's everything from Fancy Dress and Test your Strength, to the Cats' Protection League and Royal British Legion.
For an alternative view of the day's events, see Alan_Warriner's portfolio.
Thanks for looking,
Moira

Hes cute , but oblivious of you as he is intent on focusing on being a pirate. Great shot.

I think this boy has already chosen his future carreer. What a little poser!

Thanks everyone! I can't take credit for him, his Mum had done a lovely job in kitting him out. The lollipops were handed out to all the Fancy Dress contestants, for most of them I think it was their sole interest in the exercise!
