Haynes Motor Museum

Earlier in the year, the organisers of British Naturism's Nudefest event arranged a clothes-optional visit to the Haynes International Motor Museum, so I took an afternoon off and headed down to Yeovil. It's a pretty good collection, broken down into broad themes - British marques, American classics, Motorsport, Supercars, Vintage, a whole room of red sportscars, and more - well worth a visit if you're in the area. Technical note - pics taken on my compact camera (Canon S120), not the big Nikon....

London

A few photos from the weekend's trip to London - we spent most of the time in the V&A and I think we covered most of it! There's also a brief detour into the Natural History Museum, which I think is just a fantastic building.

Cornwall 2012

SWMBO and I had a break down in Cornwall a couple of weeks ago, staying at the rather lovely Gurnard's Head, just beyond St Ives. A couple of really excellent meals. It was also a good excuse to actually take some photos - I'll warn you now that if you're not interested in photos of waves then there's not going to be much here for you! After we arrived on the Friday, we took a stroll down to the actual Gurnard's Head - quite pleasant, and rather odd with the cloud level somewhere about the height we were at. Saturday morning was spent at Sennen - we had originally planned to walk round to Land's End but couldn't be bothered in the end. The seas were really spectacular, and combined with a blue sky and sunshine to make brilliant weather for photographing the waves. I like this sequence - it gives you a good idea of how big the seas were. In the afternoon we...
