It's been a long time since I took a picture and I think it will be again, but I thought I would grace you with an archive pic from Chester Cathedral. I spent a while taking pictures of this bird and I think this is the best one.
The reason why I took so long is because I wanted to get it right, and I'm not sure I have, I fired off a load of shots to get it right but in the end we have this one. I could see the light coming in from the window in shafts but couldn't capture it as much as I would have liked.
Anyway enjoy the snap
Hooray it's the Autosports show, lots of cars and drivers all in one place. It's quite like a trade show but with an action arena and lots of Universities vying for candidates as well as the accessories that go along with cars that I have no clue about. Don't forget the ladies in Lycra who adorn the odd car or two that seem to attract more attention than the cars at which point you get a gaggle of blokes pretending to take a picture of the car and some not even pretending.
The action arena was quite good with Jason Plato and Louise Goodman doing their stuff, parading stocks, vans stocks, the McLaren MP4 and all sorts of other stuff spinning around the arena. As well as that there was the Caterham Drift arena which I should have had a go at and Karting. All spiffing fun
The pic is of David Coultard who had a Q and A at the end of the day with Bernie as a backdrop.
As you can guess from the title there are several firsts today. The first (first) is that we are at the NEC. Second is that we are about to go to a motor show, goodness knows what that will be like. Third I shared a restaurant with David Coultard though I didn't do anything embarrassing like ask for a picture, I think Paul di Resta was there too but I wasn't sure. Finally I am trying out my EyeFi card with a new app I created so no-one knows what mess will appear since there's some strangeness happening when the picture transfer to my phone from the Nikon. Anyway this is a picture of the NEC at night, less of a good pic and more of a test so let's see if it works. With any luck lots of pics tomorrow at the show.
