After our recent 'Ring visit, I grabbed a few photos of the car out at various points in the country. Sadly I made a fairly dogs dinner of it (kinda gutted about that!) however some of the slightly better ones that came out are here [:)]

I apologise now about the state of it - it was fairly filthy and I was too hot to be bothered detailing it... But never mind [:D]

All the way to Germany and you still manage to find a field with big rolls of "stuff" in it and take pics of your car [:|]

Hay Shiu! (No pun intended, honest [;)])

Their hay rolls are like MASSIVE compared to over here, so much cooler for a background. Wasn't anywhere in their cool little buildings I could really sneak the car, other than stopping in the middle of the road, and they were still a bit busy for that when I was taking these on the Monday [:(]

Car's never been in a bit of the forest before tho - especially a woodcutters one [:|]

Shall we organise some kind of run around the UK (give me some time to get a new car, or a hire one!). We could bring girls like that on the way. Seriously though, I would be up for a trip around the UK at some point. Maybe from down in Kent upto Scotland or something over a couple of days.

Chris....I think I need to be introduced to Claire. Theres a way of getting me to the curry in reading [;)]

Oi stop dragging the tone of my thread down or I'll go and break that link [:p]

And who's Cla... oh you didn't mean that pic. Don't talk to her any more, sorry pal [:p]

Anyway, as for Canary Wharf - a great place for pics - as long as there's not toooo many cars (the security get a bit iffy up there, they had words I think with TT Dan even tho it was just him so?) it'll work nicely for a minishoot??

Depending when, I'm sure I couldb e persuaded [:)]

Only 15 mins away from you, where ya live maybe a little meet as i work over there ....[:D]

Chris like ya say the security can be a pain , but as ya no i been working there for well over 6 years now so i know a few of them and some of the places that ya can get great pics from without them even noticing , or the easy way is to apply for a photo cert ie most walk around with their big cameras takin pics of the building and if they havent got a cert they get moved on

i can find out about it when i get back to work ...........[:D]

Looking as good as ever Chris[:D] I see you have the obligatory Ring sticker too!
Cheers Claire [:D] Photos hide so much, the car (well the front
anyway, the rest had been detailed) was absolutely minging with flies
from 3 countries... So that was a touch. I have a major bird crap
issue atm, one of them's managed to go right through everything so I've
gotta attack that and fix at some point - nasty mess on my front ring
[:(]

EDIT: And yes having persuaded myself it was going around the ring - it HAD to have the sticker [;)] Where on the course was your sig pic taken?? Which viewing point if you know??

You have some cracking shots Chris
Thanks fella - the secret to that in my opinion, is take shed loads, and pick the best. Law of averages says some have got to come out. I'm getting slowly better, but if you go through all the german photos i my gallery (esp the other cars at the ring), you'll see how poor they can be lol [:D]

Thanking thee both [y]

Unless if its going to be an evening meet, but then the pics wont come out trumps! [:'(]

Evening meets are the norm, but i think the best pics are taken during the day. Nevertheless even just a meetup would be good!

I live near barking, but work in rainham! Used to work in romford! [:p] - gallows corner!
