Project Herald: All In The Details – Vintage Heuer

It was always the small details that were going to help deliver the “outlaw” or “cafe racer” image I wanted for the Herald and this is been one I’ve been waiting to do for a while; I just had to wait for the perfect watch to come along.  Unfortunately this missed the Retro Cars shoot due to a shipping delay, but here’s a few pics of my Heuer and the brushed alloy mounting plate I made up.

It had to be a Heuer simply due to the motorsport heritage and outlaw Porsche links.  It’s in perfect condition and fully working; ideal for timing those cross-city races and posing at Goodwood later in the year.

Goodwood Revival 2012 Photo Challenge: 24 Shots, No Deletes, All B&W.

Maybe it was the atmosphere at the Revival, or just the realisation of how much I take my 7D for granted, but me and my wing man Rog decided to have an old school shoot out:  24 shots, no deletes and all straight out of the camera, just like the good old days.  I very rarely shoot in B&W and worse still never use an SLR (despite having a few and some films gathering dust in the loft).  For shame.  It’s amazing how knowing you only have a limited number shots focusses the mind and really gets you thinking about every aspect of what you’re pointing your lens at.  Here’s a few of mine, the winner is still up for debate…

14-16-09-12 Goodwood Revival Part 1

Money can’t buy you taste, but those with money and taste go to Goodwood Revival.  How do I even begin to put this event into words…breathtaking?  Not really cutting it.  Everything apart from the cars was amazing: the clothes, the people, the details, the shows, the signs, the venue, the food, the aircraft and the atmosphere.  The cars however, were mind-blowing and the racing was the best I’d ever seen (including, but not limited to the WRC and F1).  I wanted that weekend to be the rest of my life. I wish it was 1964. I wish ever day was filled with Ferraris, Aston Martins, Porsches and touring car races won with grit and fearlessness, rather than billion pound aerodynamic tweaks.

Here’s round one of my pics, drink ‘em in, because however good you think it was from seeing these…it was better.

Summer’s Gone (and so has the 924)

Country houses and ’80s GT cars. I had it all.

I’m still not sure if it’s a good or bad thing, but the 924 has changed hands twice since I sold it and it now lives with a guy I work with; I see it EVERY day.

Project 924: The Archive of a Life Less Ordinary

Another busy weekend means still no proper shoot of the 924; I did however stop off for 5 mins at the industrial estate where the KP was shot for Retro Cars Magazine.  Unfortunately James Lipman wasn’t on hand this time, so you’ll have to live with these:

I’ve de-wipered it now too.

When I bought the car it came with all the original books and a huge folder of history.  Inside was every receipt for every bit of work the car has had, every tax disc, concourse entries and all sorts of press clippings from the ’80s to now on the 924.  I love going through this stuff and will be adding to it where I can.
