Roger's contented look comes from the fact that he's just blasted Martin with soot filled water......twice

On the button is this one mate

(how's the car?)

LMAO @ Keiths comment ... or is it the fact that he knows he's just about to blast him?? Wink

Car's a bit beaten up, needs new tailgate and bumper etc. but I've got several slight injuries though, main one being constant pins & needles in my left arm. BMW drivers eh??

Cheers for a great weekend guys [and Jaz], here's to the next one.

Excellent detail. To me this is half way between a portrait and an environmental shot so I'd go for a tighter shot by cropping from the left and a smaller strip off the top,

Cheers Pete, I have actually got one like that cropped in camera, but he was looking too much at me ... so this one went up. I did want to keep the tunnel corner in but I can see what you mean though ... cheers!!!

Ta Dave, the incident was me stopping abruptly for the car in front ... but the fella behind didn't ... at least not in time :-(

Car needs some work doing to it, and so do I.

Glad you like this one mate, I've got a fair spread of people, wide and detail shots so you lot will have to be patient for a while Wink


EDIT: Cheers Cole, no-one is ever too good to stop learning though and who better to be taught by than the 'master' Wink

A man happy at his work. (both you and the train driver I feel).

Thanks for your wishes Ann, the car is booked in to the garage for next month, doctor has told me to take Paracetamol and Ibuprofen and the pins & needles in the arm should go in 'a week or two' ... can't wait, feels weird :-(

That image is imprinted on my mind mate ... urghhhh Wink

Someone decided to plough into the back of my car when I broke for stationary traffic, new bumper and tailgate needed, but it's driveable at the very least.
