Sweeps Festival 2019 (Set 2)

By lifesnapper  
Hi all and many thanks for your lovely votes and comments on the first of this series. Smile
The Rochester Sweeps Festival attracts many different types of characters as you will see as the series goes on. It also attracts many thousands of spectators over the three day event which makes photography far from simple. However, despite the ever changing weather and light, the push chairs and buggies and people with total disregard for anyone pointing a camera, I did manage to get a few interesting shots.Smile

All the best to all and have a great weekend.

Now how did I know the identity of the photographer from only the briefest of glances at the opener???
A very enjoyable set, John. Has to be the opener for me, too.

Great set from this colourful festival.......all those colours are not what one might expect at a sweeps' festival but all the more welcome for the photographer.
