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…

Project W123: All Day. All Night. #otherotherbenz

After dropping the Retro Cars W115 for Si I was on a roll (broken, but on a roll) so had another play with mine:  It’s down a little more at the back and now packing 20mm spacers to even it up with front.  Other work has included ‘box and diff oil changes, fresh plates, new grill, deleting the high level stop lamp and filling it with so much waxoil winter can’t touch me.

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.

02-09-12 – TRAX12

I generally go into things with an open mind, but when it came to Trax I was pretty sure I knew what I was going to get:  The bad old days of Max Power liberally plastered all over the tarmac of Sliverstone circuit;  neons, fibreglass and shell suits.  It delivered.  The welcome suprise was among the bad and really bad were some really cool cars.  Here’s the filtered best:
