Tummy of Love

Not sure if this one has seen the light of day. taken at the World Cup at the velodrome recently.


I don't snap riders at the velodrome that much. Bit like a bus-man's holiday and all that. But from time to time I have a camera with me and here a flash too lighting up the Tmax400 that had loaded in a kiev60 that sometimes works. Souped in R09 for a while @ 1:100.

The Old Car

We just got a "new to us" car - a red one as it happens with doors that all open and close and radio that works. While The Old Car was awaiting to be taken to that Car Place In The Sky, the local Yoof trashed it! As it happens someone noticed the drunken idiots and challenged them - only to be threatnd. Such is Gtr Manc. life these days. Hopefully, for us, for not much longer.

As a parting shot, here's a nic snap of The Old Car.

With an Ilford Sporti

A lovely simple camera given to me by my chum Malc. Thanks mate, tis lovely
