Event Photography Swanage Carnival Wheelbarrow Race
Event Photography Swanage Carnival. The Swanage Carnival is a highlight of the town’s calendar. We have all the festivals but the Swanage Carnival is the peak. The ‘heat wave’ had past for the procession day. Rain and wind. That did not stop the visitors or locals coming out to see the people and floats taking part.
The Wheel Barrow Race is possibly the second peak to the week of fun. Entrants in fancy dress with wheelbarrows that have to run around the town and have a drink. What could possibly happen?
The event was ready and all the entrants in fancy dress all I needed to do was to arrive and press a button. With the Carnival Wheel Barrow Race going around the town there are several locations to try and capture all the entrants to the wheelbarrow race. Shooting from the triangle near the Swan Pub I was able to snap away as the wheelbarrows came up Institute road. When passed a quick move over the road and catch them again stopping for a drink at the Swan. Short walk to the seafront and catch them racing for the finish line.
Great to see Alan from Old Harry Camper Company fellow crewmember on the Swanage Lifeboat taking part in the 2018 wheelbarrow race.
Catching an event like this is just the start. Having to go through 100’s of pictures to sift out the good ones takes a little while so jump over to the gallery of images from the Swanage Carnival Wheelbarrow Race and check them out.
If you took part then I hope I have a shot of you. Please share. Tag people that may be in the pictures. I am sure they would love to see the fun.
Please feel free to contact me should anyone require prints or further information.
