Fellow Silly Tuesday travellers

Posted by
Curly (South Shields, United Kingdom) on 27 June 2017 in People & Portrait and Portfolio.

Well folks I think that's enough of churches and cathedrals for now, so I've put together a very large collection of pictures of people. I hope I don't bore you all with the length of this feature but it chronicles a day in Whitby, North Yorkshire back in April of this year. The event was the Whitby Goth weekend, ideal for fans of Goths, Steam Punk, Victoriana, Emos, Dracula,etc. It seemed that the whole world had gone into fancy dress and descended upon Whitby. Seriously this was an event not to be missed.

This couple had travelled all the way from Lancashire and we met them on the excellent park and ride bus service which takes you from the West Cliff into the town centre. Bit of an early morning shock!

A Goth Weekend in Whitby, sound like a lot of fun. The 2 people from Lancashire, might have come from Salford. A superb image, and I look forward to your people pictures. A great one to start with. 5*
