Followed by a day in the shires. Three very provincial jobs in the diary for yesterday, including rubber duck racing & a country fare & a church fete. Local newspaper work hasn’t really changed much in the last 30 years, the usual fodder of local news for local people.

Wings & Wheels Day 2

Today was mainly about the Red Arrows as they were unable to get out of Brize Norton yesterday due to thunder storms. Due to a low cloud base & the proximity of Gatwick Airport, they could only do their “flat” display.

Muggy, humid, hot, sweaty, damp, moist, just some of the words that could describe how my day has been. Noisy, smokey, fast, agile are several other words that could describe what I have been photographing, and the best thing is there is another day to go.


FA Cup


23/08/2016 Chessington & Hook United v Guildford City. City’s Perry Coles scores City’s second.

Guildford City made it through their replayed FA Cup match last night, by the “skin of their teeth”, truth be known, in a replay that should never have been, after City had be profligate with their chances in the initial game at the Spectrum. It looked like City may do the same again. However,  City managed a 2-1 win away to Chessington & Hook to see themselves through to the next round against Bognor Regis Town on the 3rd September, which co-incedentally will probably be the next game that I make it to, as I shall be covering Wings & Wheels next Saturday & Sunday and covering the Buckinghamshire patch on Bank Holiday Monday.


_PBB4386Seeing as I am trying to reduce the amount of kit that I haul around on jobs, I decided that one way to do that was not to carry a laptop, but to downsize to an iPad. This works well on some jobs, but others need the versatility of laptop.  But for  those that don’t need it, I purchased a ThinkTank App House 10. most of the time this lives carabinered to my Think Tank Airport, but on some occasions it get strapped to my belt.

This makes it great for those walk about all day jobs, with two bodies, a 17-40 on one & a 35-350 on the other.

FA Cup Action

GCFC v CHUFC FA Cup 0266

20/08/2016. Guildford City FC v Chessington & Hook United. Matt Glass beats the keeper but can’t beat the defender on the line. Gotta love a keeper with a face full of turf! :0

Guildford City faced Chessington & Hook United in the FA today, a last gasp equaliser in the 93rd or 94th minute prevented City celebrating a trip to the sea-side. Replay on Tuesday night. In other news, I haven’t been able to collect my car yet due to the dealership wanting to give the car a complete clean inside & out, despite the fact that I cleaned it thoroughly before handing it to them, I can only hope that it will come back better than new on Monday.
