Suzuki GSX650FA

After a break of about 20 years nearly, I finally decided to hold out no longer, and treated myself to a shiny new toy.

A new Suzuki GSX650FA.

This is the first pic of it, no doubt there will be more.

Image of the Week WINNER. 10/2/13

I am a member (admin now) of a great photography forum, http://www.photography-forum.org where over the years I have won several image of the month competitions, and won a few yearly awards.

But the image of the week has eluded me for over four years.

But no more.

My picture of Jade “Legs Eleven”, one of my favourites of the shoot, was chosen to be the Image Of The Week, and as such has front page status for a week on the site.

I am well chuffed.

Below is a screen grab of the image in place. (click to see bigger)

New Years Eve 2012 in Berlin

A group of us went to spend new years eve in Berlin, as it is meant to be the biggest in the world, with 1 million visitors.

I only took my Canon S95 compact camera, but I did get a couple of shots.

The actual event was anarchy! The crowd we continually letting off powerful rockets all the time, and throwing REALLY loud bangers all the time, in the crown, in doorways, under cars everywhere. You could not relax as you were always worried about being hit by a firework. Drunken people were setting rockets off from empty beer and wine bottles, literally right in amongst the crowds. We saw rockets flying horizontally above the crowd dipping into the crowds, and actually saw one hit a woman in the back.

The most unbelievable things was there were loads of police about, watching!
