For the benefit of those followers of my Blog not familiar with UK holidays, the first Monday in May is a public holiday – “May Day”.  In Leighton Buzzard, the Rotary Club organise a huge event that fills the High Street and town centre park, with numerous fairground rides, stalls for charity and local organisations, and several events.  One of these is the Strongest Man competition and I decided this year, that this was the one thing I wanted to photograph with a view to monochrome images.  Unfortunately my 7 year old son and 2 year old nephew didn’t have the patience to see it through (too many other distractions!), so here are some images from the first two rounds.

One thought on “Muscle Men Put on Show of Strength for May Day

  1. Bedford Blues RFC might be interested in these guys! If they end up facing Newcastle Falcons in the Championship League Final my loyalties will be divided.
