Today’s photo was taken (along with a bunch of others that I’ll be publishing here shortly) at the Astle Traction Engine Rally a couple of weekend’s back. Normally I would’t travel as far for one of these events but, as the two similar rallies closer to home have been cancelled this year, and as some other photographers I know were going, I decided to make the journey.
Our cat is still not home although the vet called to say he’s making a bit more progress – he’s started to lick his lips and has attempted to eat some food (although not with complete success) today. We shall await a further update tomorrow as he’ll be staying at the vets for at least another night.
Smoky old engine
Chugging, puffing, and smoking
Burning through its coal
