Sunny Afternoon

On our way to collect the van to move the CCC exhibition, we found the hire shop shut and ourselves with more than four hours to fill.  So we went down the road to Duxford, where the boys had got out their big toys, from top, PBY (Catalina); Mark I Spitfire and Hurricane and the Blenheim.

Cambridge Graduate Orchestra

On Saturday evening we went to photograph the orchestra for their website.  At the rehearsal we could wander round but the players were dressed in many different colours.  At the concert they all wore black, but we could not move around much.  So we turned the rehearsal pix to B&W.

Pony Party

For Meredith's party two Shetland ponies arrived to give the children rides.  The dark pony was called Fairy, and miniature one was called Angel.  Meredith led her up and down the lane about twenty times.  It was her third riding experience in twelve months.

Fun With Light

The top two were lights on a bicycle wheel, the glasses were lit with a light stick, and the last is the old setting fire to wire wool trick.  Thanks to Martin for waving things about.

Grass Track Racing

Pruning my old images from 2014, these pans were taken at 1/60th second with the Canon 300mm f/4.  It yielded an impressive blur but the success rate was low.  Even at ISO 100, the aperture varied between f/16 and f/22.
