Good morning all……We had snow over night but it has all melted now Sad


I took this shot when I went to a Robin Hood pageant at Nottingham Castle. This chap was in the role of an Alchemist and I thought he really looked and played the part. I really liked all his trinkets and paraphernalia. The conditions were not that good and I just managed to stay under the edge of the tent he was in as it was absolutely chucking it down with rain…and grab a few shots. At least the downpour cleared the crowds and I did not get jostled around for a minute or two!


Thanks for stopping by Smile

C&C welcome

Large is probably better

I took shots of him years ago.................again in the pouring rain
He really got into the character and was shouting at the photographers to stop stealing his soul

Thanks for your time...

He did not shout at me....I was the only idiot left standing in the pouring rain....so I suppose he was playing gladly to an audience of one!

A pleasing image Alley. He certainly looks the part, Catweasle springs to mind. All those background objects really add interest to the shot.

We are Alley ... most EPZ'ers have probably never heard of the guy. Just googled for him and first shown in 1970 apparently.

Lol, have a look at .....
