Portsmouth Victorian Festival of Christmas

So yesterday my family and I attended the Victorian Christmas Festival which has been a family tradition since I was a very small child. Normally I only take a few photos on my phone but as I got a new camera for my birthday last month I decided it would be a good day to give it a go.

The settings aren’t quite how I’d like them to be just yet but I’m happy with how they turned out till I can make my adjustments so my set up is how I like it.

One of the Christmas Belles (a stilt walking duo)

My favourite part of the entire festival is these two angels on segways they get everyone up and dancing with their collection of disco hits
