The annual steam engine rally in Cornwall provides many opportunities for some candid shots. These are my first attempt with the D70.

The end of the day and the real work begins, cleaning, de-coking, oiling etc.

These two had been chatting to some friends and obviously had really enjoyed themselves as they set off to park the engine.

I spotted this chap driving his engine through the parade area. He immediately evoked many emotions, one of which is weariness, but also perhaps melancholy.

This young man, or 'Chunky' as I call him was in his element. Dad was providing the power from the engine, all he had to do was steer the thing through the showground. He never saw me, the setting sun was in his eyes, all he cared about was what he was doing in the cab.
