Northumberland Greenlane

Its been along summer without any posts!!!

I’ve a fair few mag articles that have been published so will try and get some of them up soon and work through them.

These few images are from early on in spring time up in Northumberland. Starting at Berwick then on through to Corbridge (I think!) … we took two days in travelling down the many Greenlanes. They eventually made up two Greenlane entries in two consecutive Land Rover Owner International mags.

The day was warm for spring, the breeze was cool off the North Sea, I miss the sea living equal distance from both the west and east cost in Yorkshire. These Greenland shoots are great to get out, get fresh air, bit of exercise and plenty of good conversation in the Landrovers as we avoid as much civilisation as possible 🙂

I’ve just selected a few images and I’ll comment on each on… if I can think of anything interesting to say about that particular field, hedge or situation….. The gate above was actually one of the last of the final days but gave about 4 inches of space to get through.

There must have been about 8-10 fords over the few days and some that were decent due to the rain that was had in the county previously.

My favourite time…. bait time! Talking about local dialect …. we went to a pub on the evening for some food and on the menu it had “sarnies’ which for me made me smile a little as you don’t hear that where I live now….

This ford above has been visited by the editor on numerous occasions but was always too deep to pass but on this occasion it was okay to do so.

The image above was taken just after the one below. Neil the editor was capturing a few bits of video for other editorial features for the magazine.

As the only passenger in this convoy as well as the photographer you are the official ‘Gate Openorer’ . I took a quick image above to show that Neil was getting better at judging how far you can drive uptown the gate so you could still swing the gate open in front of the defender. This was the closest we got out of all the gates……. and let me tell you theres a few !

The lane above was only short and I remember we already had plenty of other similar lanes in the bag so to say but Neil asked for a couple of images for the image bank….

The causeway to Holy Island in Northumberland is one of the main iconic places in the region….. I used to go there as a kid so was just another reason why I loved being in Northumberland for a few days.

If you’ve not been then I can highly recommend getting up there as the county is large and offers sunny scenery, coastline, Forrests and the people are friendly with great accents 😉

I’ll try and add more shoots sooner rather than later 🙂

Targa Time – June / Cover Shoot

5 Targa’s, North Yorkshire Moors, the original date was moved due to the poor weather…. new dates set and the forecast was sunshine all day….. happy days! Checked the forecast the night before and still all looking good, travelling there on the day the story was different. Slightly overcast but still fairly bright but when we got to the location, on the tops of the moors the wind was a decent strength..

.

The image above was a quick phone snap. In that canvas bag hung on the bottom of the tripod has effectively x4 sandbags to weigh the thing down as the wind was mental. The video below has me waffling on but when I turn you get the idea of the wind!

Getting the Cover shot done while the cars were in a decent clean state and this parking area was clear of other vehicles as well. My image I sent in to the mag on the left which is made up of I think of about 6 images. The TVR front NS was light as well as the 348ts front nose, OS wheel and 911 bumper nearest to the camera just to lift them a little. Was framed incase they ran with all of the cars on the cover but with room to crop. The horizon, reduced by squashing, reducing to give more type space and a little blue sky.

For the few group wider shots we moved the TVR, TR4 and 348. Really for either an alt opener, final article image or content page. Due to time we ran with the lighting and didn’t light anything.

While the cars were there I took about 5 different ‘cluster’ images of various groups with the one above left used in the content page with the famous Porsche targa detail.

The other orchestration image to shoot was the opener with all 5 cars in the frame.

To make it easier and get as clearer shot of the cars was to shoot on a bend so we could frame the cars as they naturally fan out behind us.

A couple of runs to get everyone the feel of where I wanted them and comfortable we got a couple of frames that I was happy with.

Original image above and the final DPS below. I tend to keep my images on a neutral feel so the mag has enough latitude in the Jpegs to push and pull accordingly.

After this then the plan was to drive a root and then for me to make sure I get each car front and rear. Simply by keep mixing the order of cars and then for me to ride in each car to shoot forwards and backwards.

Some of the cars were easier to get into position and other like the TR4 were tight (for a big lad!)… Repeated a few of the shots as some cars were good to use details / badges as a lead into the frame.

These shots above and below were on the cutting floor but I still liked them…. The TR4 could have been a lot closer for my liking but again would you have a TR4 up your rear end egging you on to get going!

To cross the t’s and dot the i’s we shot individual cars to again give a few options for the layout. The road above is a fantastic road in the North Yorkshire moors…. the Romans would have had kittens if they saw this (above) but for the driver its all the sweeter : )

Tried a couple of village shots to give a wider sense of tour…. (on the cutting floor….)

With an area to get a quick static and details of each car…. below are some that were used and some that didn’t make it…

911 engines are just there…. no real easy way to make interesting in that sense but tried to use the Carrera badge on the boot lid as a lead in… and again for the 348

The dials and buttons in the 348ts look like something from a Casio calculator or 80s Walkman… proper old school retro…

The TVR hood that is in two parts had some real sculptural shapes which you just have to use and run with : )

Finally after the panning shots and details was to get Sam behind the wheel of one of them (this was after he’d driven all of them through out the day)…. TVR was the choice which is a mental car and just wanted to chew through the roads….

19 pages is no mean article and must be the biggest out a shot for me…

All in all despite the weather and conditions it turned out better than expected.

You can always rely on the weather…. and the next few days the sun was out blazing!

Since this shoot I’ve been back to that location for another very different vehicle and the day was blue sky and wind was non existent which was a change from this day… : )

 

 

Spitfire Mk2

Well nearly a year has past since shooting this restoration project for Practical Classics. As far as I remember the weather was touch and go and rain either side of this day… Again local (as in less than 20miles from my home) so happy days all round for this one. The rest opener images could be the garage shot or a tracking shot.

We started as ever with the garage shot due to lights being set up and the most time consuming set up of the images.

Four lights used to get the images below lit. Because of the post in the middle of the garage it really limited getting the car in such a way to help with the DPS and where the centre crease of the mag would go.

You can just see the bottom of a stand far right of the frame which was the main light to light to two owners, the light on a small stand beside the door was used to light the front near-side wheel. The light clamped on the back wall was to lift the light on the side of the car nearest to the camera.

This image wasn’t used as the opening images but elsewhere. if it was the centre crease of the mag would have been between the wheel and the headlight.

While the car was on the drive and the sun was steady away we shot some details to get some in the bag. Really good job and level of restoration of work… and them wheels! even on a dark damp day they would be still gleaming.

Bit of a snap shot of the roof being removed here and ended up as a cover cut out for the article.

The opening DPS above and the original image below.

More of the tracking shots below, different angles / heights.

I like these two (above and below) images, to show the owners and also one less so…

A wide range from black to whites as the car was nearly black and the sky / clouds white so had to let the clouds go a little to help bring the detail out of the car.

Coming to the end of the shoot and the clouds becoming more frequent…

Them wheels man! …bling bling

Simple statics and details whilst the sun is still out.

Again only one real ‘detail’ shot used in the final print but you can never be shy on getting details.

Nigel the journalist always makes me laugh when we both try and get into a small car to get a driving shot of him. I’ve mentioned a few times I’m 6’3″ and Nigel is a good 6’4″… knees wedged…. this just adds to the list of our restoration shoots.

Great job local to me and the roads used weren’t that far from the owners as well so all in all a decent day 🙂

 

Frazer Nash Restoration

Another shoot for Classic & Sports Car, a little nearer to home and another restoration. Your off to photograph a ‘Frazer Nash’…. My first reaction once off the phone was to Google ‘Frazer Nash’, as I’d never heard of one….

A great restoration and pleasure to photograph a real classic vehicle. After shooting the Riley as neither restoration article the format was in the same vain. We started off grabbing some statics and owner shots and found a small sailing club willing to allow us access to its location on the edge of a reservoir.

The slip ramp down to the waters edge was an ideal place to have the Nash… pity about the pylons but you can’t have everything. A couple of Photox Indra heads either side of the camera to help lift the car when the sun was in or to help lift the shadows when the sun came out as the sun was behind the car on this angle.

A vertical of the same shot as the first one above. Verticals, landscapes of the same shot to give as much possibilities as possible for the final layout.

These three images of the owner beside the car ….. the one above was just a variation of the once below with arms folded which made the final cut.

Above, this was used small on the index page.

In essence the same shot but just tighter on one than the other. The sun kept coming in and out at this stage so was juggling the flash power a little but the cloud was moving a a decent rate in order to wait for a softer light didn’t take long.

Same as the two shots at the beginning of this blog. These two above were taken one after the other, high and low again to give a different option.

 

Plenty of little details to capture so here a re a few of them the tI supplied to the mag. Tight details like the Bosch lenses were good but also coming slightly wider to get one or two details in a shot help with adding more content to an image and article instead of loads of really tight details.

The tracking shots were in effect for an opening DPS or if a static was used then a stand alone image in the article. In anyway you’d be only seeing 1-3 max images from the tracking images / moving images. Framing all the images below for an opening DPS but also a wider composition to add some space to the image.

The couple of images below were a chance to get a good view of the exhaust pipes coming from the nearside… sent the Nash ups and down this short stretch of road. Like I said I only really wanted shots of the nearside but captured the car travelling the opposite way to test see how slow I could drag the shutter…

The image above was used on a vertical full blended page….. sky obviously added from the ‘sky folder’ : )

 

The final layout….. simple shoot but really good being local and an unusual car.

Pink Espada…

Whats better than a car that is marmite to separate the automotive masses … a marmite car that is metallic dusky pink! Double marmite!

I fall on the side of marmite that thinks it should be known as ‘Devil Paste’…. (just like twigglets should be called ‘Devil Sticks’!)

So now we’ve got that sorted and out, back to the Espada. Words fail me when it comes to this Lamborghini, not in the sense of complete horror but more of a head scratch. In one sense I like it when a car comes out and bucks the trend and goes against convention and runs with impracticalness …

The day was crisp and with the low November sun the day of lens flare and shadows was to be embraced.

For me its all about the angular rear end and inconspicuous tail pipes. Not sure if the vertical back windscreen is for a purpose as the back windscreen is almost horizontal or just added because they could!

This angle helps you to see how much load capacity there is and that the Friday big shop would be nailed in this daily drive : )

The famous Lamborghini shaped scooped air intakes later sported by the Countach across its door panels…

Bit of sun glare, oh go on then. As ‘The list’ is a nice tight article of about 7 pages the images are a mix of statics and of course driving images. Once we got the driving images in the bag we moved onto the opening DPS image of the reader behind the wheel. All the images below are full frame with no cropping so you can see what the editor has to play with. Knowing the centre line can be an issue your really only can shoot from the side or over the shoulder. On the right car I’m still looking to shoot through the drivers window…. one day 🙂

A mixed bag below of the ones supplied but not chosen. Shooting when theres a treelike behind the driver so you can get the sense of motion when shooting from low down.

The chosen image for the DPS. Normally I would have left this image out if the edit due to the large amount of headlining but as this image would be for a DPS it gave plenty of space for the title and text.

Quick portrait of the reader using a pop up reflector on the soft side. Still the sun was that strong it threw a lot of light into the shadows.

Just one speed light to pop a little light (well a lot) back into the cab to counter act the shadows. If the car was say 180˚ with the sun behind you run the risk of harsh light cast across the dash. I’d prefer to get the interior in shadow and then light it so its as unified in its lighting as possible (not a hard fast rule but easier on the eye).

Just playing about with angles and really was trying to mask the background buildings as much as poss. Had the car 180 ˚ but the shadows in the engine were way to dark without lighting it massively.

The interior was original and in a real good state…

Well a double marmite right there… what do you think?

a few more blogs to wright so until next time : )

‘Coal Power’… The Steamy Landy

I’m sure you’ve seen this steam engined Landrover over the past few months since its creation at the end of 2017 such has it made local and national news…

Fairly local to me on the boarder of Yorkshire and Lancashire on the tops the weather was in the balance and didn’t disappoint due to the sun, sleet and snow within a few hours.

Meeting the creator and owner Frank with his distinctive Lancashire accent, flat cap and steam engines you could have mistaken him for a Fred Dibna. ‘Mildred’ as the landrover is commonly known as was already prepped and fire well and truly underway ready for our arrival. Not so much as a turn of a key but cleaning the fire box, building the fire and getting the fire going in order to produce the steam to power this Landy into a colossal speed machine….. : )

Not the easiest vehicle to get into position so you shoot what you can where it is, plus the snow …

So off we set for a little run…. well literally for me was a run. I shot from the flat bed to try and get an opener and get the story in one shot.

The location was fairly remote but still had the passing motorist looking baffled with the site of a miniature steam engined Landrover cruising at a comfortable 5 mph…..(not sure of the exact speed but I would say thats a fair assessment : )

The image above made the final cut but not as the opener….. was hard not to have the centre of the frame cutting through a key feature such as the firebox… Still trying to get some motion in the background you can see on the wall to the right of the frame…. having to drag the shutter a lot..

No sooner had we set off we found somewhere to turn around….. you can do a lot of shots in a short space of time while your only doing walking pace!

A little oil to keep the thing running smoothly then we were off again.

Soon found out the steam from the chimney wasn’t a constant bellow of smoke but only came when setting off and increasing speed.

The images above show the incredible speed of my good self as I run along the wall, stopped and shot a few frames before running ahead of the Landy to a new position and repeat the process…..

No need for any rig for this set up but a sturdy bumper and somewhere to hold on to then shoot : ) …..

You could almost do tracking shots whilst walking along side it…. at least I got a little exercise …

Getting back to the base and another chance of getting a large plume of smoke…

Great little details of using the iconic 4WD knobs as the whistle…

Frank turned out to be a very interesting character… being the only sailer to have sailed around N & S America in a figure of 8, owns various companies… just a great time just getting to know him and what he’s achieved.

The image above was never used in the final article but just added here so you can see the original small scale steam engine he built and where the engine came from that is now in the Landy.

Very interesting and another one for the memory bank : )

A Couple of Rowan Atkinson’s rides…

Before you all think I spent a day driving around in a green mini with Mr Bean unfortunately it wasn’t meant to be. Although that would be a shoot worth waiting for this was to shoot a couple of cars from the private collection from Mr Atkinson for Classic Cars.

The day started of crisp and clear which boded well… However the weather had other ideas. I remember calling the mag office and they said they had clear blue skies where as we had patches of thick fog… nice :/

We set to with the details as the cars had just come out of storage and were given a quick wipe down. As soon as we hit the roads that would last long.

As this was a comparison of some sorts I looked for details that could be paired up on both cars. The Merc below with the bonnet overhang made it easy to get a bit of depth to the shot.

 

The Lancia above was a visual chocolate feast for the eyes… If a car needed to be sponsored by Cadburys then this is the one.

The hope was the fog to lift and brighten up but once the details were done we headed off to find some roads to shoot the tracking.

Variants of each car leading for an opening DPS…

Full frame image above and then the final image below as the DPS.

Getting these shots were okay but soon as your out there the road spray was coating the camera and lens in a lovely water, misty layer over the lens.

Only a few frames apart these two images and getting a few different angles with different distances between the cars.

With a use of a speed light inside just to bring out some details a couple of shots here to try and get a different angle for a rear shot of the Thema.

By this stage the light was dropping due to it being late winter time and the extra blanket of fog we started to wrap things up.

 

Monte Carlo Rally Heros

Its been a while since shooting for Classic Car Weekly and with this next shoot when I was told I’d be shooting a 911 and a mini my mind was a little confused as to how these images would look. I didn’t know the context of the shoot and the story until I arrived at the mini specialist.

Simple like for like comparisons with the Cooper and 911. Keeping the same angles and view point of each section… or whatever I took.

As ever a couple of Phottix Indra heads used on these early shots at the garage…

As ever theres plenty of images that didn’t make the final cut.

Great road long enough to grab the car to car images we needed.

There was a dry ski slope along this stretch of road which was a great little stop to get warmed up and have coffee and cake 🙂

The image above and below were on the same stretch of road and just liked the bleak-ness of the road, the weather conditions and despite the original confused idea of shooting a 911 and a mini…I do like some if these images.

Both the owner compete in historic rallies so were very competent in getting the car into the positions as I directed from the back of the astra. Makes life a little easier for me to have a confident driver…

 

Really looking at shooting more stuff behind the camera and looking at the story of the days shoot than just the images.

If theres anything you want to know in the future or any points you’d be interested in knowing / seeing then just drop me a line.

A short video of the inside the 911 as we made our way on part of the route to shoot some panning…

The final few pages …

 

60 Years – DB4

End of November on the tops just South West of Huddersfield…a tad brass! At the home of the late David Brown, former owner of Aston Martin and the shoot to commemorate 60 years of the DB4 for Classic Cars.

At the airstrip/field that was owned by David Brown where he flew his De Havilland Dove and after a days business / pleasure then back in the hanger. One key feature at the hanger which is still there are the tyre tracks so that the Dove aircraft could be lined up perfectly for the hanger. You can just see the three lighter tracks on the image below with the nose wheel track running directly centre of frame.

This DB4 on the day was used all year round by the owner and as we found out only got a clean once a year. So the first 30mins were spent giving it the best quick wash/wax we could with the products and cloths I had. I wish I took a quick image on my phone of before but was concerned as we had a decent schedule to shoot to with light fading fast around 3:30-4pm.

The same shot above and below but with the hanger doors opened (below; also you can see the aircraft alignment tracks clearer on these shots.

Just added these two images as they are both shot with polarisers but with the above shot you could say it was ‘dialled’ in more to cut the reflections from the roof and tops of the side panels as the background was light this helps just highlight the car. The image below was the opposite with it dialled out so the light reflections on the roof and side panels revealed to help the car stand out from the background.

Both images have a couple of studio lights just off to the left and right almost parallel to the car just to give it a little lift and help the brightwork come out more.

With the car being dark and the background, neutral and flat there wasn’t anything really to help the car stand out.A few lights and the sun just coming out now and then just to add to the mix we moved on to getting the car out and about.

I can’t recall if we went straight to the old tractor factory in Meltham straight away or did the driving images first? Anyway the story was we trace a little of the past of David Brown and his empire. Nothing left really at the factory other than a few signs and this was the best angle to get a clean shot as there was a. whole row of parked cars on the road behind the BD4 above.

Quick swing of the car around then a rear shot of the same above then we headed off on to some of the roads that David Brown would have taken to test and develop these iconic cars.

Before that a few detail shots of the car were taken at the airfield.

Near Slaithwaite but as in the article Sam Dawson correctly adds that this is pronounced (Sla’wit)…. the light was brightening up a little and so there was a little texture on the clouds.

The images above just getting a few different angles for DPS as well as straight on tracking.

With the area being as much a part of the story tried to get one or two location / driving images as well.

With the light fading we headed off to our final destination which was the family home which is now a hotel / venue establishment.

Shooting a DB4 which would have graced this place on a fair few occasions to finish off this story before the final appointment which was to interview David Browns grandson.

Sitting in his former lounge and the place were he grew up the light was dark and every light seemed to have a different colour temperature… So with that in mind I added a little light to help give some shape to Adam Brown but with it dialled right down so its wasn’t too distracting for the interview. Waiting for a momentary hand-gesture or factual expression so I wasn’t taking hundreds of frames when I only needed a good selected handful.

An interesting day, great to see how close I live to the automotive history that is the DB era.

…still pleased I had plenty of layers on thought!

70s refreshed designs heading for the 80s

If there ever was a shoot that nearly got abandoned it was this one… Shot end of last year for Classic Cars Magazine in the Peak District. Three cars that were tweaked as a last swan song as they headed into the 80’s and the hot hatch era…

Opel Manta… (which I kept saying ‘Mantra’ through the day to Ross the journalist much to his amusement 😉 ….. think I’ll put that down to the freezing fog and the sharp ‘breeze’ whistling over the moors.

It started off pretty clear at 8am sat in a carpark waiting for the owners and cars, then as the time approached the temp was about 0 / -1 and the snow/fog/sleet started coming in fast. Visibility was non-existent on the tops but we found a winding road that descended below the fog so we started with the first two cars that were there. The Rover SDi and the Brooklands Capri. Shooting from car to car for all three cars we had to run with the road found and hoped the fog would lift.

The route we took was about 2 miles long with a carpark in the bottom village as a turning point to take the road back up to the tops. A few runs we had to ditch as it was a fairly busy trunk route.

Using the few corners (image below) to shoot the capri so any following cars would be hidden behind the banking.

Again on the straight you could bring the capri in closer to hide any following cars.

The sky had to be worked a little in order to make something of it instead of just a flat white expanse…

The Capri owner had a dash cam and took. few images off there of his view of me shooting the shots above. Well the image below was coming up the hill where as the image above was travelling in the opposite direct but the view would have been the same with me hanging out of the passenger window getting the camera low to the rear wheel.

The image above was a lay-by near the top of the road where it was safe to leave the other cars as we carried on with the shots. Also the Manta owner had just turned up.

The three images above were using the road again and due to the amount of traffic only a couple of angles were suitable and with etc weather still not the best up top and time against us we cracked on to get images in the bag. The Manta was good for the external decals which gives something for the eye to run off into the rest of the image.

Once a couple of pairs were shot we decided to get somewhere we could shoot the details / interior shots and to garb some lunch for the owners. Very rare on a shoot that I stop for lunch, its easier to carry on through. We found a decent sized pub car park and with an hour before opening they were happy for us to use the carpark. Plus there was a convenience store just over the road which hid hot sandwiches. So leaving the owners in there I’d get one car at a time and replicate the engine / interior shots and then details.

Below are a few images from the Manta…

With it being a three car shoot there won’t be that much space for loads of statics so simple front 3/4 shot for each one…

One light used as it was massively windy so weighted down just one light as I didn’t want to risk two lights blowing over… Helped a bit with no direct sunlight so no major shadows to contend with.

You get used to shooting a landscape & portrait version of certain shots to give the Art editor a choice and not to constraint the layout as much as possible.

The dials I shot again for each one to replicate the comparison flow… The silver surround above wasn’t standard but was sprayed by the current owner as well as the Irmscher logo in the recess behind the gearstick (below)… Some purists would be marking down on points but for me it was tastefully done and not to nasty.

The Manta had a few decals externally as mentioned before so were obvious choices to shoot and which another point which sets this Manta apart from the Capri & SDi.

Joked with the owner when he opened the bonnet and said “Could have cleaned it!”…. after he realised my dry humour and facial expressions to go with it we had a good chat about the era and cars. For me this a great point to shoots, meeting other car owners with varying degrees of passion / obsession for all this 4 wheels.

Once all the cars were shot individually we quickly shot this three car group shot for the cover cutout. I always try and find a location which allows me to shoot just clouds / sky through all the windows which makes the A-editors life a lot easier to cut out for the cover.

You can see the finished cover above with the three car cut out on top. Incidentally all the shoots on the cover of this issue are my shoots. If the main yellow DB was one of my images (which this is not) I’d have had a full house of the cover… don’t think that’ll ever happen again 🙂

Will be blogging about Rowan Atkinson’s Theme and 500 shortly so keep coming back to this blog.

Anyway getting back to the Peak District…

The fog and ‘weather’ lifted after lunch and these statics so we took the opportunity to grab the opener three car tracking shot. A road that must be about 1 mile dead straight was very welcome to keep this shoot on track. Below a re three shots from a few runs, with the opener being the third one…

Not really surprised but the opener wouldn’t be my first choice but then again I’m the one who just presses a button… The final opening DPS below.

Seeing the final image and the one I sent the mag you can see that I don’t over process and leave plenty of room for the mag to tweak in order for the printing process etc… Also I do prefer the blue tint to the sky on the final DPS and all why I like the sky with some definition instead of the flat white sky we had at the beginning of the shoot.

The final pair was the next to get in the bag… and a great road which I’m sure I’d be going back again to…

The image above was using the same straight DPS road which gave us plenty of room and visibility ahead to get these shots in a safe manner.

Getting some side pans of each car as I knelt down in some wet peat / moss. Thermals, two layers on before two winter coats plus decent waterproof trousers. Due to the cold the layers were essential but with the trousers you can just get yourself anywhere and not worry about getting two cold/ wet for the rest of the shoot.

The Capri owner shot a copy more stills off ….

You can’t see on this shot but another essential bit of kit are gloves… especially when you tracking etc as you need some dexterity in your fingers to help you keep a hold of your camera and change the settings whilst on the hoof… The gloves I’ve found to be great for these are Karrimor running gloves you can get from Sports Direct stores for about £5. No need to cut holes for your thumb and finger tips to spin the dials etc as these are fairly thin and have thin rubber gripped palms and fingers. If you look for ‘photographic gloves’ you could be paying upwards of £30… on my second pair of these karrimor as they are just fantastic…. little tip there 🙂

A rear tracking of the three again on the straight road … unfortunately my radios had given up due to over use and the cold weather and once I got back got a couple of fulls charges ready for the next shoot.

All in all this shoot turned out better than it started… still for me plenty of room for improvement and was a little disappointed with the days shoot….

Still found some more great roads for shooting and hope to return again… maybe I’ll just take myself off with my weekend toy once the weather picks up and shoot myself 😉

The final layout article above….

If you have any thoughts on this blog, what you want me to write about more then please drop me a line 🙂

cheers
