Half of White Rabbit

By Philip_H
Taken at the first Beverley Real Ale Festival (19th-20th October 2012), held in the beautiful surroundings of St Mary’s medieval parish church, Beverley, East Yorkshire.

The festival had around 35 ales and 10 ciders and a specially brewed festival ale (White Rabbit). Why ‘White Rabbit’ – because St Mary’s church is famous for a delightful medieval limestone carving (hoodmould stop) of a rabbit in the garb of a pilgrim (The pilgrim rabbit) - thought to be the inspiration for Lewis Carroll's white rabbit in Alice in Wonderland.

Thanks for all the C&Cs on ‘Born May 12’.

Cheers,
Philip

Nice one, Phil, works really well in black and white, sharp as well considering the low light levels.
Well done.

I was very restrained! I only had two half's of 'white rabbit' - and very nice it was too! GrinTongue

I've had a really good but tiresome break, thank you, Philip. I drove more than 2500 km in ten days.
I love this candid for more than many reasons; to name a few, they are: the facial impressions, the boy leaning on the mother, people having great time, the scene itself and the tonal range.

Probably didn't have the chance to down too many of those great samples of the local product? Tongue Sounds like great fun and makes for a very successful candid. Really enjoyed the info too.
