Showmans Line Up At Great Dorset Steam Fair 2009

I am only able to attend on the Thursday night this year, so a few quick images, this one showing the Showman Engines all lined up with the funfair in the background.


A few people have commented about the lack of people given how packed the Steam Fair was. It was purely patience. On the extreme right, inches out of picture is a couple with a dog that just would not move, but I wanted the exact angle with the Showmans and the Wheel. I must have waited 30 minutes just for the moment the crowds eased up (AND the Wheel was spinning) so I could shoot - and allowing for the 2 second delay on the timer as well! My thanks to my friends who were with me that evening for their patience too (even if they must be used to me by now :)...
