The weather here is so bad lately (for about a month now it's been raining almost daily. Lots of flooding too!). I'm also incredibly busy with the new family too, so this means I rarely pick up the camera over the last few weeks.
However, all is not lost. No new images for my flickr site means I've a little more time to upload older images from road trips and other events. Things that I should have uploaded to my flickr stream ages ago!
So please do check out my flickr page and you'll see a few older images from White Sands (New Mexico), Tombstone (Arizona), Colorado and more.. Keep coming back each day as I'll try to upload a new one each evening!
The image, above, is from White Sands National Monument in New Mexico. If there was ever a place on Earth that looked like you was in Antarctica, then this is it! A rather hot version though - 300+ sq.miles of white with only the distant mountains visible. Quite spectacular.
Here's a lovely wallpaper image perfect for a 16:10 monitor like mine :)
I shot this during our trip to Norton Priory in Cheshire, England. A pretty cool little place with such interesting history. Give it a google sometime...
Please check out the rest of my Flickr stream :-)
To celebrate Independence Day weekend we visited the Stars & Stripes American car show at Tatton Park, Cheshire. You don't need to be an American or even someone physically in America to celebrate the break from British rule! Just have a love of everything that makes this country so great. Today it is their incredible history of motorcars.
Almost every type of muscle car was on show along with trucks, rigs, RVs, bikes and more. However, the cars from the 70s interested me the most though I do like the current modern cars from Ford, Dodge and Chevrolet. Whereas the ones from the 50s really capture my Moms imagination and my Dad seemed to love those HUGE rigs and the pickup trucks.
Perhaps growing up in the 70s and 80s watching TV shows like Starsky & Hutch, The A-Team and Dukes of Hazzard is probably the main reason for my early love of the distinct American style. Funnily enough, a General Lee was present at the show. Whether this was one of the official cars is another thing but it was so cool to see it up close!
I managed to get many shots of all my favourite models by Ford, Dodge, Chevrolet, Pontiac, Plymouth, Chrysler, Mercury and Buick. However, at the time of writing this, I've not yet had the chance to go through all the images in Aperture but they'll be on my Flickr web page soon enough!
I have to say, there was some incredible cars on show. If only I could afford myself a Charger, Mustang or a Trans Am...sigh!
Keep your eyes peeled on my Flick page for the images!
I should have blogged this ages ago!
I recently had one of my photos picked to appear on the Schmap website as part of their Oslo guide. Click here for the web link :-)
As you can imagine I'm very proud!!!
A ghost town on highway 67, west of San Angelo. I do like the dark & moody image this scene creates. I've more shots of Texon to come..
Texon was indeed a creepy place to visit and a true insight into something long since dead. This is real old time western America that's left untouched for all to witness.
