Film 18

I've no idea when or where this film was shot.  Possibly the Cairngorms or Wales?  Who knows. This particular outing seems to have been erased from my memory banks.

Film 17.

Not much to say about these two.  The first is my eldest niece (who is now training to be a doctor) and the second is Canary Wharf seen from Greenwich Park.  Both would have been taken between 92 and 94 when I was living in Blackheath.

A boys' trip to Amsterdam involving, surprisingly enough, heavy drinking and some sightseeing.  Having run out of money and being unable to afford our hotel bill, we decamped rather swiftly and headed to Delft where, after several more beers, I slept on the street and awoke to find the car and my friends gone -  actually just round the corner but they couldn't wake me up.

It amused the locals though.

Film 15

A week end by the South Coast.  One of several I took with a group of friends in the nineties.

We usually stayed at the same pub, The Cashmoor Inn, where we became famous for drinking Burning Beavers and causing a fair amount of damage to the pub (not as much as we spent though).

I like the landscape though.  One of my better shots.

Film 14

An unusual one this.  A shot of my MGF parked outside my flat in Islington, where I lived for 8 years as a bachelor.

My MGF was my pride and joy but one day I received a speeding ticket taken at 2.30am on the M20 in Essex.  The only trouble was I hadn't been anywhere near Essex for a considerable length of time.  Some little scallywag had cloned my license plate and stuck it on an almost identical MGF (but without the luggage rack).

Luckily Essex policy believed my pleas of innocence (I wasn't the only 'victim' of this scam) but for the next 6 months I received more speeding fines and parking tickets on a regular basis.  I am pleased to say I was let off all of them.
