Learning the ropes

Posted by
Curly (South Shields, United Kingdom) on 4 September 2017 in Transportation and Portfolio.

Steam Traction Rally, Corbridge, Northumberland.
It looked to me like the old master was passing on a few of his well honed skills to his younger apprentice, perhaps hoping that he'll keep this machine on the road for a few years more!

I apologise for my absence over the past week, I am working some extra days as my colleagues take holidays, I also have a large mass of pictures to finish editing. I hope to be back with you all this week.

PENTAX K100D 1/125 second F/6.7 ISO 200 82 mm (35mm equiv.)
