There's usually a collection of photos here from this event, but apparently not so far!
I'll remedy that with some photos taken at Pickering on Sunday.
All were taken with the K-3 and DA 16-85mm.

1. Women's Home Defence



2. American Encampment



3.



4.



5.



6.



7.


The colour co-ordination was purely by chance!

8. Same photo with a twist.



9.



10.



And for the railway buffs:-
11. LNER Thompson Class B1 61264



12.



13.



14.



15.



16.



There might be a few more to follow.

Absolutely terrific set. And as a fan of street photography I find No.s 7+8 superb.

Thank you both. I must say I've never considered myself as a street photographer. I guess the difference with an event like this is that those dressing up must almost expect to have a camera focussed on them whereas in a normal street scene some might find it intrusive. I'm not really sure why some of the Whitby Goths from a year or two back got so uptight about it, If they don't like it, don't do it in public!

20. Anyone able to identify this?
Could be a WCO 42 Enfield 350 bullet.
Great set of shots.
C&C welcome.

Thanks for further comments and lead.
It seems much the same as this (1941) Royal Enfield WCO 350 ccm

Great images John. Shame I missed you. There weren't many Petaxians around - probably just you and I.

Seems like it, I didn't spot any others around either. I only went to Pickering around lunchtime as the rain put me off earlier on and Pickering is only around a 30 minute drive away for me so I didn't need to rush. I was expecting to find the place deserted after all the rain; certainly wasn't the case though! The afternoon was quite pleasant and I found plenty to photograph.
I get the impression you had a train ride?

A good and varied set with plenty of event scenes and coverage.

The M/C is indeed a WCO 350.

I couldn't make it this year but glad to see the images above.

Best regards

I got to Pickering quite early - I think it was before 9. Probably will get a speeding ticket in the post in a day or two as well. I then took the train to Levisham and was planning to keep on going but the weather was atrocious so came back to Pickering. Then took the car to Goathland for a little while and then on to Grosmont but didn't stay stop there and came back in mid afternoon.

Oh dear, did you wizz past a scamera van? I haven't been on the NYMR for quite a while. One thinks twice about paying out 30 for a trip. Maybe would if it was a tenner though. I know it must cost them quite a lot to run but 1 x 10 gives them more than 0 x 30.

Yes - b******* . Ticket came in the post today.
About the train ticket - yes I agree. 26 is rather steep. I was planning to use the car but there was no parking at Levisham so decided to take the train all the was up to Grosmont.
