Something for the petrol-heads! Pageant of Power, Cholmondeley photos 2010

A break in the weather gave me a window of half an hour to run round and grab some photos of the Pageant of Power, Cholmondeley. Lucky there was some sun otherwise there would only be close-up shots of V12 engines! A fantastic setting down in the Cheshire country-side, the pageant of power is essentially a festival for those who prefer the smell of gasoline to music. Although some might argue, the sound of a supercharged V12 engine is music to ones ears!

Walking off to War - A Photo from the Lord Mayor's Pageant, Liverpool 2010

This was one of the last photos I took on the day of the Lord Mayor's Pageant. The whole scenario of the military marching down the middle of Castle Street had a certain 'wartime' feel to it. Help for Heroes is one of the Lord Mayor's charities and is a very relevant organisation in today's UK.As I was walking back to the car I photographed an old rusty roller door (as you do...) and then blended both images together, stripped back the colour to give a grungy war-torn feel to the image. This is in stark contrast to the rest of the images taken that day - they were filled with vibrant colour. I will post a few of the colourful ones when I get a spare mo!
