East Somerset Railway
A short while ago Somerset Life gave me the opportunity to head over to the East Somerset Railway and take photos of the volunteers who work there.
I didn't really know what to expect and thought that the job would probably take me an hour or so. However, when I turned up I found a great bunch of guys who are totally engrossed in a passion and love spending their time mending and shaping old trains into tip-top working condition. Of course as a photographer I also found many wonderful characters, faces and hands to take photos of. So four and a bit hours later I had just about finished and was packing up to head home.
Whilst I was there I had the chance to add a few more images to my hands project - lovely dirty railway worker's hands covered in oil and soot.
