The circus came to Southland Shopping Centre, Cheltenham. Every day for three weeks I went past this on the train. I have wanted to capture a circus big top for years. This image has been in my mind for a long time.
Finally, on a dark and stormy Saturday afternoon, I went out, braved the biting cold and took a few shots of it.
The strange looks I received from people driving through the car park were the highlight of this day!
