Cornwall Spring

I’m not sure if the title is a reference to the season or that a holiday has put a spring back in my step, but I certainly felt like I needed a holiday after the last few months. In fairness, of the two weeks I took off, we spent 8 days in Cornwall and the …

1903 Di Dion Bruton 8CV

I often pop out at lunchtime, trying to find interesting things to shoot. It doesn’t always pan out – the stage at Broadgate for some kind of Japanese festival is still going up stubbornly slowly. Imagine my surprise when my other half told me that there was a classic car parked over the road from …
