June 19 2004:
40s Sweethearts

Alresford, Hampshire

Today and tomorrow, the Watercress Line has a War on the Line weekend, where scenes from 1944 are recreated. Many passengers were dressed in 1940s garb, whether that be military or civilian, and I was really impressed by the efforts of so many people that gave the railway such an authentic feel.

When I saw this lady, I knew she had to be my PaD, but I had envisaged showing her in black and white to suit the era. But that did not work, partly because of the strong sunlight.

I took many pictures today and will create a gallery of the day as time permits.

Cropped and Resized
Framed using Pantone Warm Gray 1C

Canon EOS 300D Digital Rebel
1/200s f/11.0 at 120.0mm iso800 full exif

Up 'til now I'd always thought the 40's happened in B&W... ;-)

Great picture Ray.
This is a line we have never visited, but may do so later in the year.
