I had been going to spare you more Jubilee uploads, but I do like this batch. Nearly a week ago already...

V1 is ear-marked for the town's 2013 calendar;
V2 Spam in the kitchen;
V3 The Ovingham Players;
V4 - The Dragon Tale Theatre Group; Wendy (the Queen of Hearts) will be carrying the Olympic Torch through the town next weekend;
V5 to V8 Pretty well self-explanatory, I think..
V9 What's the collective noun? A vocation of priests?
V10 Songs of Praise in the open air;
V11 Going home; this one is now in the Beeb's Jubilee Gallery at number 9, see here.
V12 The last of my Majesty series real life presents such interesting juxtapositions.

Incidentally I asked for parents' permission to photograph the children, mentioning that pictures might be published (quite a few of these have gone to the sponsors' PR people); nobody objected. The world isn't quite as mad as some folk make out.
Thanks for looking,
Moira

Lovely title, a great set of shots! As Walter says, they "caught the spirit of their fun" and of the occasion. I especially like the ones related with children.SmileSmileSmileSmileSmile

Annette's put it perfectly.

This is a super set, Moira.

My favourite is V2. Not just 'cos of the spam but mainly 'cos of that gorgeous turquoise dragonfly brooch Smile

A smashing happy set Moira, always good to see people having fun, and better still, recording the event in Photographs.

Good photo journalism, excellent photography, did like the white line to follow going home . . . Last time I had to do that I was suspected of drinking.

excellent set and most noble of you to ask permission for taking the childrens photo's and of course we all should - I steer clear of those I have no relationship with

An excellent set, broad ranging but capturing those moments, Number 5 if I had to pick one, but I also like No 11 - the parent and boy walking away from the camera (and hopefully a memorable day). Chris

A very colourful and extremely varied set of images documenting the occasion, all are so quintessentially British and a number typify the British sense of humour
