L1007376.jpgLadies and Gentleman, before I start editing all my photos from the road trip to the South of France in the Aston Martin Cygnet, I thought I would show you a link or two to my Grand Prix de Monaco Historic 2012 gallery and allow you to listen to my vantage point at Rascas, a truly fabulous bend on the Formula 1 circuit.

Click on the photo on the left to see the gallery and Click the video below to hear the sounds at Rascas.

Articles in Classic Car magazine, Huffington Post and some photos on the Octane magazine blog soon to come.

It is not every day that one has to decide which lens to prepare for a ride high above the capital, which aperture to think about and which view below you most want to capture, but for me today was a particularly enjoyable decision to be made. Settling on a wide angle and f16 I knew I would be perfectly fine. I would be happy to see any of John Betjeman’s story below me and try to steal a little of it.

Goodwood Revival 2011

If ever the phrase ‘in abundance’ was to be used it would be today here at Goodwood Revival. Lord March once again has struck his deal with God and the British weather provides glorious blue skies, where middle aged men are prodded by their wives with suntan lotion. Spitfires fly low and Maserati Birdcages roar round the circuit. Woman look gorgeous in their vintage (literally 1940’s and none of this 1980’s is retro idea), and gentleman revert to raising their seats when a lady leaves the table.  This is a time gone past, something the delicate playground that Lord March provides. This is the playground that my friends and I enjoy so.
