Bunker Bash 2010

I went to Bunker Bash - a Living History event hosted by the Secret Nuclear Bunker - on Sunday. This is the events 5th year but the first time I have visited it and I wasn't disappointed. There was a fine selection of reenactor's present along with an interesting assortment of vehicles from different periods. I particularly enjoyed a display by a group dedicated to showing off the work of the Royal Engineer Bomb Disposal teams. This was something I've not seen before and the talk given to the public was very interesting and entertaining.

As usual all the reenactor's were more than willing to talk to the visiting public and many gladly posed for pictures. I really liked was this character shot I took of one of the German soldiers. I altered the image to try and recreate the slightly grainy, high contrast look of contemporary photographs and I'm pretty happy with the finished study.

As usual I shot loads of pictures, a selection of which can be seen in the slideshow below.
