Clad Whale?

Is it a Whale or a Transport museum…

It was such a grey day, the flash kicked in.  Views of the Clyde and buildings in the window reflection, heading towards the City…

Wood Slick

This is by far my earliest and largest photographic project.  Most times, its better to show one or two pictures.  I am taking a chance and showing 20 pictures.  The photographs really tell the story and I hope they hold your interest.  I managed to capture these pictures early one morning going along the coast road to work.

The Cargo Ship,  “The Ice Prince” carrying Timber, ran into trouble in rough sea’s near Portland Bill, England in January 2008.  The crew where all rescued by helicopter and lifeboat, before she sank.   Timber, 33ft long planks where washed off the Ship causing a Wood Slick running from West (Portland Bill) to East (Beachy Head and beyond) of the English Channel.  “This is what I saw that morning”.

These shots taken, were on a beach stretch in Worthing a few odd miles West of Brighton & Hove, England.  2000 tonnes, washed up along the coast causing hazards on the beaches and to the shipping lanes.  Anybody lifting timber away were threatened with arrest…

Lets make Tracks

I like heavy plant, this was begging to be snapped…

We are the Mod’s

Brighton.  Famous for being a seaside resort, two pier’s, the Graham Greene novel “Brighton Rock”, Fish & chip’s, sticks of rock.  Mods and Rocker’s (Quadrophenia) and much more!

View of The Brighton Pier, formerly ” The Palace Pier”, through the bikes…

Waiting to get into Brightona, the Motor Bike and Scooter Rally.

Vintage Lambretta’s and Vespa’s together looking fine…

More lights and chrome…

Hope you enjoyed the Scooter’s, “I love them”.  These vintage models make my modern Scooter look like a toy.  My neighbour in the 60’s when I was a small lad, had a Lambretta and he used to take me up and down the road on the back.  No helmets then!

Next time, I will throw a few Motor Bikes into the mix…

More Hove Cemetery

Had another stroll through Hove cemetery with the “Jack” this afternoon.  Found some more interesting monuments, take a look.

Found this Tomb:  The inscriptions are hard to read (zoom in, maybe you can see better) He was a French Noble!  As far as I can make out, his stone reads; “Charles Augustus Vicomte Pinon Du Clos De Valmer”, The Last of His Race.  The inscription goes on and on and makes interesting reading…

A family Monument, a family history.  On this monument, I found a sad read about a lad who died in the African Campaign and is remembered on this stone.  My Great Grand Father served in the same campaign in a different regiment! and was featured in  BBC documentaries in the 60’s, one of the last surviving solders of that campaign. “Boer War”.
