Simon’s Mini

This is basically the reason why I was taking pictures tonight, it may have been freezing, it may have been dark and my car may have blown up from overheating when running so the lights could stay on, but I told Simon I would get some shots and what better time to get them than in the snow, which comes in Basingstoke very rarely and it seemed a shame to waste the chance.

This is actually only the second time I’ve used flashes on pictures of cars, the first time was when I first got my Jetta, the results were ok, but I’m more happy with these ones, the use of Bevell’s lights and car headlights helped a fair bit.

Simon’s Mini a very nice machine, and it’s also more capable of supplying enough power to run the light than my car so I could take some pictures of Bevell’s Rado.

It was just by chance that Bevell decided to bring his Rado out with his light to get some pictures, which are shown below.
Anyway, here are a couple of my favourites of Simon’s Mini.


Bevell’s Rado

Recently, my good friend Jonny Bevell got a new VR6 Corrado, he may have spent his his savings on it, it also might be still on stilts, but my god is it fast, very comfy, has basically automated everything and he is spending a fair few quid on it. That’s right, he’s not doing what everyone else is doing/does (spending as little as possible on making the car what they want), no…..he is buying all the top of the range stuff and making it a ‘B Machine’, as usual, the stinking well off turd.

Anyway, here is some pictures, shame it’s basically a shopping trolley.

Jack ‘Sparrow’ Ford

This is my good friend Sparrow, who I take pictures of fairly often to be honest, as when you hang out with someone whenever they’re out, it kinda happens like that.

In fact, earlier on in this blog I took some pictures of him jumping his car, which can be found here.
But enough about that, more about these pictures, I took these on a ‘moist’ night at the park, as, in the current weather conditions, this seems to be the best we get, ‘damp with puddles’ not cool, but, we make the most of it to say the least.
It was a complete coincidence I saw Sparrow at the park this night as I text some people, but all of them were on duty, and Sparrow was the only one who didn’t reply, so I decided to take a trip to the park anyway to see who as down there and if there was any photo opportunities, as I was going a bit cold turkey with the old camera.
I got down there, Sparrow was there, and he hadn’t looked at his phone in a while and was also surprised to run into me, so I took a few shots of him, which made a change, as I think these are the only BMX shots I’ve shot in about 2 months, which is too long, and I hope for that to change when I get my new lenses, which are coming soon :).
But enough about my camera habits, here is my favourite picture of Sparrow I took that night, happy viewing and stay tuned for new posts when the weather clears up.

Hanging Post

There’s a hanging post on the outskirts of Basingstoke, to be honest, it’s effort to get to.

But when your sitting in leisure park car park on a friday or saturday night with no money and nothing to do, and it is foggy and dark, apparently a hanging post and creepy churches seem a good idea.
After stupid amounts of driving around in basically a big circle down bumpy country roads in a very low van and Sparrow’s mk3 Golf estate, we finally climbed a very steep hill to find ourselves at the bottom of a dirt track that led to the hanging post.
We got out the cars/van with torches and my camera, and walked up the dirty, puddly, wet track and finally got to the top where the hanging post was, I think the worst thing was it was graffitied with penis’ and ‘tags’, but never the less, to stand next to it and think people were genuinely hung there was kinda weird to say the least. I think it would’ve been a perfect photo opportunity if it was a clear night, as it over-looked the whole of Basingstoke which was pretty awesome, but unfortunately it was misty/foggy so you couldn’t see much.
Either way I took a picture of the hanging post, so here it is, and underneath is a picture of Sam driving his van after my lens got very condensed and misty, but I kinda liked it in a weird way, so enjoy!

Time Off

I had a few days off recently, so there really should’ve been time to update this thing, but I didn’t.

In fact, I haven’t even thought about it until now, but truth being, there’s nothing to post really, due to crappy rainy weather.
But I’m going to attempt to anyway, with what material I haven’t posted, so to keep you occupied while I’m doing this, here’s a picture of Tommy Bruza singing his heart out on Guitar Hero…..enjoy.
