Southampton round trip on 17th Feb

On the 7th Feb we made a round trip to Southampton. This seemed like a good opportunity to try out the on-board camera in overcast weather conditions as I was still not sure where the photographic limitations lay.

Latest Uploads of modern photos

Latest uploads from Portfield Roundabout include this well used Leyland DAF 65.210 vacumm tanker and a fairly new Renault C 380.26 vacuum tanker belonging to A1 Group (Wet Waste)

Yesterdays photos at Chichester.

I spent an hour taking photos in sub-zeroish temperatures at the Portfield roundabout in Chichester yesterday. Clear skies and bright sunshine made for some very sharp photos of the passing traffic.

I have uploaded the first 30 starting at DNC04734, a Polish registered R400 Topline of A2B-Online Polska, and ending with a DAF LF dray of Marstons (DNC04768)

Uploads to both sites

For cataloguing on our DotNet site I have uploaded a few more Boeing 707s from Brain Stainer’s “Aviation Photo News” catalogue and some more from Jack London’s collection.

To blog or not to blog.

A series of events following a brilliant family holiday in Mallorca ruled out blogging through November, December and most of this month.

PhotoNews 110

The latest issue of PhotoNews is now available on our main web site. Both the air and road versions are a bit shorter than previously and close on the 9th of October to allow me time to get the photos out and go on holiday.

Recent uploads to DotNet and the main site

I have now uploaded the last of the current batch of Bill Bushell’s photos (Just over 1200) to the DotNet site. These include some superb shots taken at Gan in 1972 including three Shackletons of the, by then, disbanded 205 Squadron being ferried back to the UK complete with “White Knuckle Airlines” logos and other graphic embellishments.

Back in 2006 I was lucky enough to purchase Bill Bushell’s black and white negatives for the archive.
