A woman's work is never done

By mrswoolybill
A recent Steam Transport event at Beamish.
The version is to show that they both got their hands dirty.
Thanks for looking,
Moira

They seem to be discussing which was the best Jimi Hendrix guitar solo.

As much as we like to take these images and I love them we can get most things right except their faces. We still end up with 21 century looking faces. I suppose this may be to do with our diets but nevertheless still a very good and descriptive image.

Agreed 100%, and it's one reason why I have no interest in re-enactments, except when I come upon them by chance. I always see company reps, insurance salesmen, receptionists - playing at doing something more meaningful...
Thanks everyone.

I love the expressions and the composition Moira. Excellent, and mono suits it (them) well.

Dan makes a very interesting observation....I always feel that something is off, too, in re-enactments.

Love these steam traction events, make great subjects - like my 'personalised' number plate with my initials! Two great captures, with the ladies in period costume, just had to be in mono Smile

A womans tiny hands can get into places where a mans can't. So my husband says. So I get greasy quite often. These ladies seem to be having a good time, they're smiling. Two good shots Moira.
Two splendid images
