Auto Focus is for Wimps!

And for people like me who can’t quickly focus on demand it seems! Although to be fair this image of a Porsche at the 2012 Rally Classics 60th Rally Costa Brava was shot with a Twin Lens Reflex and they are not really the choice of camera for sports photography… or for that matter anything that moves faster than a glacier.

Though I do quite like the result… had it not been a cornflower blue car I wonder if I would have felt the same… I’m not sure why I think the colour makes it work.

I thought I’d also upload this image of a Golden Porsche, but only because Mogwai wrote a hauntingly great piece of music with the same name.

On a trip to Girona, Catalunya my brother and I stopped off to watch a navigation stage of The 60th Rally Costa Brava. This photo was taken under the cool shade of an avenue of trees in the city centre. The drivers and navigators had just finished a stage and were waiting for scrutineering.

In total we counted 205 cars ranging from high power Porsches and Lancias to small Seats, Fiats and of course the classic Mini Cooper!

Out for an early walk before breakfast I spied this wonderful Fisherman’s Cottage at Ventnor, Isle of Wight. apart from the fairly modern extension on the front I can almost imagine Pip from Great Expectations hiding here while waiting to smuggle Magwitch onto the ship to Australia!

We recently visited our nieces and family on holiday in the isle of Wight. I love to be on deck on the ferry crossing and when Angela asked “will it be warm in the open?” I replied… “yes!”.

What I elected not to tell her was that it would be windy, very windy!
