Last year, I attended the 40’s festival in North Yorkshire where I encountered this chap. Several villages and a vintage railway line get taken over by reenactments in the shape of period dress, jeeps anti aircraft guns. It’s great for a photographer because you have streets full of people dressed like this who are quite happy for you to walk up and ask for a photo. In fact, it would be rude if you didn’t since they went to so much trouble. Diepite how he might appear, this was a very genial and polite undertaker.
I was reminded that I had a folder full of pictures like these by this post on Helen’s Photomania blog. So there may be a few hundred to come in the following months.
