Trying to make sense of it all.

Posted by
Curly (South Shields, United Kingdom) on 24 July 2017 in Cityscape & Urban and Portfolio.

A marathon run of people pictures featuring the weird, adventurous, eccentric, glamorous folks who took part in the Whitby Goth Weekend in April of this year. It has been a very long run, but I promise you we are very near the end!

This man appeared to be the regular Whitby tourist, who had no idea what was going on that weekend! He's studying the map of the harbour area to make sense of the scene in front of him.

PENTAX K100D 1/500 second F/6.7 ISO 200 42 mm (35mm equiv.)
