Was it the wild west?

Posted by
Curly (South Shields, United Kingdom) on 1 September 2013 in Documentary & Street and Portfolio.

This just caught my imagination, that's why I processed it in this manner.
These good people are members of the Friends of the North and South Marine Parks, South Shields. They were taking part in the South Tyneside Summer Festival opening parade just a couple of months ago but the period costumes were just too irresistible to have a play with.

Hence the Jesse James look.

Nice treatment Curly, but I'm slightly disturbed by the person who seems to have a banner for a head :)

Hi love the process. I am baffled at your crediting Jesse James and our wild west however. They look very Victorian, that is, British to me, but then, we are cousins over here.
