I don't have any new or recent images to post at the present time, must get out asap with my camera.
However, a friend of mine Diane Seddon, recently posted on her blog the idea of going back through her archived images and reworking them. I decided to have a look at my old pictures and found quite a few that might be worth another look & this is the first of them. So thank you Diane, it's been an interesting exercise.
Please take a look at Diane's blog, it's in the "Links to other blogs" on my blog or just copy the link below.
Ramone, the Circus Clown.
Quite a few years ago (2008) I was fortunate to meet Ramone, the clown starring in "Uncle Sam's Great American Circus" when it came to Cleethorpes. Over a few days we became friends, he showed me around the circus behind the scenes and I met most of the other acts in the show. I asked him if I could photograph him while he applied his "clown make-up" which he happily agreed to. These are just a few of the images showing the process.
Uncle Sam's Great American Circus returned to Cleethorpes the following year, I went to see Ramone but he'd left to join another circus. "Planet Circus" now visits Cleethorpes instead.
Ramone & his family originated from Columbia and I often wonder what became of them.
