Weekly Prompts: Wheels

This is my contribution to the Weekly Prompts Weekend Challenge: Wheels.

Weekly Prompts: Sepia Ploughing.

Another contribution to the month long Weekly Prompts Photo Challenge: Sepia.

A modern shot of an old activity. If you ignore the modern clothing and vehicles it could have been an old sepia print.

Nostalgia

My contribution to the A Photo a Week Challenge: Nostalgia.

Proving that the underwear matches the costume at a period fair (fayre probably) on the town square, Nantwich, Cheshire, England.

A final polish for the brass at the steam rally. I don’t know what health and safety would say about climbing up on the machine when there’s a fire in the firebox.
