A Costumed Love Affair

Well there were certainly a lot of people walking around Whitby in some fantastic, strange and outlandish costumes.

Here's just a few of the many characters that we came across on our travels along the cobbled streets of the town. So many variations on a theme, that I could post different images all week.

The feathered ensemble that this woman is wearing is quite incredible. And I love the face she pulled whilst I was taking their photograph.

Whilst looking at the Victorian railway station, we came across that couple in period costume. As luck would have it, a train had appeared that was pulling some original carriages, as part of the North York Moors line. So we asked them to pose by it, and I think it makes for quite a good shot.

We came across 'Gandalf' as he was walking around a corner. He was with his wife and carrying a local newspaper. His was was dressed normally, so he handed her the paper, whilst he looked mystically into the distance.
