for my aged, pea sized intellect lightroom has a very steep learning curve and I battled with it for ages just to import pics in the folder structure I wanted !!!! Worth persevering though as it's a top bit of software

So I'm probably the last to post eh?

First up is a lady some of you may recognise from the Goth weekend pictures posted some time ago, (think red hair and vampire teeth) here she is in Steampunk attire enjoying an ice cream.




I think Saltaire with its Victorian mill backdrop was a good location to snap this chap, I don't remember giving him a card so if he reads this I hope he'll contact me for a copy.




My names Bond, Jayne Bond

Howdo - pleasure to stumble across you chaps and I wasn't too annoyed, though did feel like a round peg in a square hole toting another brand. Nice to see so many Pentax people in one place and some cracking shots you gents have gathered!

Greetings Peter.
Personally I did'nt mind the D700 being touted around, at least you have a K-5......
Now that Pano GF3, I saw the web site, hmmmmm - No, I have the LX5, and And I have the K-5 with the 21mm on the front. But......

Great set of images, reminds me that Whitby Goths are on this coming weekend. Hope to see you all there on Saturday.
Alan, I think the woman with the ice cream is Julie, much photographed in various guises over the years, including red hair and vampire teeth.

To be honest I was expecting traction engines/road rollers/2-6-4 to 6-8-6 locomotives and found a range of quite delightfully illustrative photographs of some quite curious people

I am curious - Where does the name/description "steam punk" originate and why, as one thing I don't recall seeing is any "steam".

"Steampunk is a genre which came into prominence during the 1980s and early 1990s and incorporates elements of science fiction, fantasy, alternate history, horror, and speculative fiction. It involves a setting where steam power is widely used—whether in an alternate history such as Victorian era Britain or "Wild West"-era United States, or in a post-apocalyptic time —that incorporates elements of either science fiction or fantasy. Works of steampunk often feature anachronistic technology, or futuristic innovations as Victorians might have envisioned them, based on a Victorian perspective on fashion, culture, architectural style, and art. This technology includes such fictional machines as those found in the works of H. G. Wells and Jules Verne, or the contemporary authors Philip Pullman, Scott Westerfeld and China Mieville"

Clockwork is also widely used and novels often feature steam-powered 'beings'. Some of my favourite novels are steampunk, but I doubt I'd ever have the courage to dress up like that

Thank you, for once it never occured to me to look on wikipedia

I suppose when you analyse it Willy Wonka was probably of this ilk.

As for dressing up .... not a chance.It was bad enough wearing a penguin suit for a wedding.

I'm now seriously considering a steampunk/Doctor Who type look for my graduation outfit in the summer...
