Yarmouth Gaffers Festival

This weekend is the annual Yarmouth Gaffers Festival, Isle of Wight. It is an event that celebrates the Gaffer boats and is enjoyed by all. There are lots of events including street entertainers, samba bands, shanty singers, steel drums and lots more!
There are also food stands and craft stalls. The stall that stood out for me was that of a photographer called Steve Gascoigne with the company Available Light Photography. All his photographs are taken on the Isle of Wight and are absolutely stunning. Here is a link to the website.
During the weekend I have been working in the local delicatessen, but during my lunch breaks I have been going out to look around. When walking along the Quay I found the view of all the flags on the yachts amazing and just had to take a photograph!
