Steampunk

Wednesday, 17th August 2022 – just playing around with a couple of images I took at the Steampunk meeting, at Bressingham Steam Museum back in July.

Sunday, 3 July 2022

I had never heard of Steampunk but saw a posting on Facebook advising that a gathering was to be held at Bressingham Steam Museum in Norfolk. The images included in the posting seemed interesting and not having anything to do on this particular Sunday, decided to go along with my wife and a couple of photographer friends.

We really enjoyed the day as everyone was so friendly and more than happy to have their photograph taken. I intend to visit additional gatherings and will add to this section of the website when opportunity arises.

Below is Wikipedia’s definition of Steampunk which explains it far better than I could: –

Steampunk is a subgenre of science fiction that incorporates retrofuturistic technology and aesthetics inspired by 19th-century industrial steam-powered machinery. Steampunk works are often set in an alterative history of the Victorian era or the American “Wild West”, where steam power remains in mainstream use, or in a fantasy world that similarly employs steam power.

 

 

 

All images were taken with the Leica SL2 and 24-90mm Vario-Elmarit SL lens
