Monza 2018

I had a great time at Monza this year.  Here's the moment Hamilton overtook Kimi for the lead :)  Click on the image for a close-up view and then click again for the full image.  Not too shabby for a 50 year-old Carl Zeiss Jena 135mm F4 lense,

More fun at Silverstone (2014)

Another great 3 day trip to Silverstone last weekend.  Got sunburned on Friday, saw Hamilton drop 5 places on the last qualifying lap on Saturday, massive Kimi crash on Sunday, Rosberg gearbox failure and a great Hamilton win in the end.  Great fun!

Frankie's 21st

Frankie was just a tiny bit surprised when we turned up at the mini garage on her birthday!

Silverstone 2013

Had a great time at Silverstone this weekend .. nice to have good weather for a change. This was probably my best F1 shot .. really quite tough using a 30 year-old, manual focus, no image-stabilisation Carl Zeiss Jena 135mm lens (cost me £80) together with neutral density filters to try and get the best shot wide open through the fence. Quite pleased with it though.

Plumbing in the wires

OK, putting my daughter's TV on a swively bracket thing sounded really easy.  Hiding the HDMI cable, the TV power cable, the Virgin media box power and signal cables, the virgin media power supply and two extension cables was a different matter.  Quite happy with the result though .. would have been better to dig out the walls, but that would have been one step too far ;)

Andy Wray and Gardening -Never!

I can't believe it!  I've actually bought a gardening item ... I hate gardening!  But, when I realised that you can now get Lithium Ion battery-powered lawn mowers I had to get one.   No more cables to get tied up in and the grass front and back takes half the time.  Result!

Hi-tech speakers

As a treat for giving up smoking I wanted to buy myself new front speakers for the living room. After much debate with Helen they had to be "Piano black" and "Look nice". For me I just wanted the best sound at a price point that I could justify with the savings for giving up smoking. I eventually found these Q Acoustics Concept 20's which definitely fit the bill :)

Farnborough 2012

Had a few hours this afternoon at the Farnborough Airshow. A bit grey and dismall, but did manage to capture the odd moment:
