Three images taken back in July at the Durham Miners' Gala - I just thought they were amusing, that the fairground attraction in the background says it all, and that I would share them with you! Enjoy!

Thanks so much for all your comments on my Bluebells upload - I'm so pleased you enjoyed it.

Best wishes to you all,

Carol

Something had obviously caught their attention prior to v3, Carol, and the guy on the left has got his pointed at you!

Three cracking images Carol, each with their own unique attributes and stories to tell. However the favourite for me has to be photograph number III. A great image, and one certainly crammed with many wonderful toys. The expression on the Silver Foxes Face with the Blue Jacket is somewhat priceless. "A prime candidate for a Caption Competition if there ever was one..."

Three great images Carol. V1 for me, shows you can never get any peace unless you turn your mobile off. Don

Three so very different shots but each capturing a bit of the day and show in candid form: a truly excellent set, each image so beautifully captured in crisp detail and bright but natural colours?
V 2 is the most intriguing for me as I can't imagine what he's up to although whatever it is it has caught the attention of others.

Fairground attractions of a different kind!
Not sure I'd put put Ed Milliband in that category though.
The photographers are more interesting!
Well observed Carol.

Much as I love V2 with the old guy playing the spoons, it is V3 for me today as you can't beat images of photo geeks.
