Greetings to you all,

It’s that time again, all be it a little later than is perhaps usual for me to share with you my photo of the week.

This week the suggested theme was Planes, Trains and Automobiles, something that I initially thought I would find easy but then I realised that being the geek that I am I have already photographed all of the interesting cars that are regularly in my area, trains are boring as all hell and despite visits to the airport this week I failed to photograph any planes.

Fear not though as I persevered and have gone back to my roots with a rather dark and grungy picture of a BMW that whilst I certainly don’t lust after I cannot help but admire its cold efficient german industrial lines.

Planes, Trains and Automobiles

As is my prerogative I’m going to include a couple of also ran but didn’t quite make it shots for you to contemplate and share your thoughts on. 

as you can see this is a boat so doesn't quite fit the theme, I think it's a pretty boat though so I'm going to add it to the mix.

the antithesis of the cold hard German, the building in the background is The Bank of England, I like the photo but it missed out on the top spot as I don't think that it's technically a very good photo despite the emotive response it generates.

again not technically a great photograph but the guy on the bike was so friendly, he noticed me trying to take his pic when another biker pulled alongside him and blocked my view then when the lights changed he stayed back and hooted so that I could grab the shot before he pulled off. Unfortunately my focus was slightly off in my rush not to inconvenience him.

Next week we’re playing with light so until then. TTFN Mr Bunny Chow

Howdy all,

yes it’s that time where I’m going to waffle a little bit about my Project 52 and the suggested themes from Google+ and I’m not going to break the mould as it works for me.

The suggested theme this week was Spring/Autumn and as I mentioned last week I didn’t really want to just share an image of a daffodil, so despite the fact that I took some pictures of daffodils this week I’m not going to share them with you, instead I’m going to share two images that take the term “spring” a little more literally than was perhaps intended.

The first image is of a motorcycle of unknown provenance stripped back to almost its component parts attached to a Swallow Side Car which just has fantastic patina.  For those of you who indulge my geeky tendencies the Swallow Side Car Company morphed into Jaguar Motor Cars after the second world war when their initials became unacceptable in polite society.

Spring has Sprung

Because I like to spoil you I’ve got a second picture to share with you this week again taking the interpretation a little bit too seriously its of the high lift spring underneath a heavily modified Suzuki/Range Rover Hybrid.

Spring has Sprung again

Next week the theme is Planes, Trains and AutoMobiles, I wonder how badly I can stray away from that seeing as I’ve stuck them in this week.

Until the next time
