'Forties' Shadows

How was your weekend?- this weekend we went to a 'Forties Event' at Attingham Park in Shropshire and caught the sun casting shadows on these old army vehicles parked up on the front lawn - and I thought of Shadow Shot Sunday - and wanted to share.

Look at the Royal Enfield motorbike in my header picture- isn't it spectacular - my father was a dispatch rider in the war and he rode one of these!

I took random shots of the vehicles

Look at the contents of this medicine box - click on the pic ture for a closer view

I think this chap must have been having a shower or something - but he still has his shoes on ! - see the old tilley lamp hanging to the side

The event was very well supported and created a lot of interest

Forties big band music was playing in the background

A great afternoon!

    Shadows here and shadows there,
    Shadows, shadows everywhere!
    Shadows left and shadows right;
    Shadows dancing through the night!
    Shadows crouching on the wall;
    Shadows spring and shadows fall
    On the unsuspecting guest,
    Who thought shadows offered rest!

  3. What a great place to stroll around taking photos! Love all these! The 40s big band music must have been fun to listen to! Have yourself a great week ahead :)

  4. This looks like good place to taking of photographs.
    And music in the background... very good.


  5. It looks like a fun and interesting day out. My uncle was a dispatch rider too!
