Listening to the Levellers, guarenteed to make you drop your trousers!

Great piccies mate, and glad you got home ok despite issues...

You're a bloody legend mate, really.

Although rather alarmingly I look like I'm about to stab someone in the back of the head with an axe! :shock:

That driving photo was taken by my wife - she couldn't come to The National ( she really missed out! Particularly on a load of kwality swearing) but I picked her up from Stansted a few days later after I'd gently fried my brains for a few days in the Bury St.Edmunds region after getting off to flying start at the BX Club bun fight..

Anyway Pelops does occasionally take the wheel

Agreed, Pelopes is lovely!

Finally got my black-and-whites back, a week late and three pounds more than I'd expected but never mind... Full set here.

The arty black-and-white thing wasn't intentional, I just um, accidentally bought a black-and-white film because I'm an idiot. Some of these would have been better in colour, I think, but I really like the B&W effect on these ones.

2CVs line up.

I think those B&Ws look good Stu! Gives it all a cinematic quality if you know what I mean

Buggrit. I replaced the scans with better quality ones, so the file names have changed. Anyone want me to post them again? Or are you happy to click on the link?

Good to see you got back OK Todd (thanks for the photo of my knees - nearly chooked on my tea break when I saw that one!)

The first thing I saw when I woke up that morning was you carrying a handful of beers (I think to give to David R in exchange for a heater matrix), but at the time the first thought that came to mind was "Blimey, Todd's starting early!"

Nice B & W photos Stu, not sure whether it's my monitor but they seem to be tinged with colour? The thing I like about the one with the DS and caravan is that there is nothing to date it.

Yes, that's why I replaced them! I uploaded them all - and then noticed that I'd scanned them in colour; the scanner had obviously picked up some ambient light. :oops: I've done them again in greyscales and I think they look better now.
