Alton Bus Rally

Alton Bus Rally

A couple of years ago we found out about the Alton Bus Rally and went along.

It’s the largest free event in the UK and is a great place to visit to see Buses, Old Cars and Bikes.

It was something we missed last year but I’d put it in the calendar to make sure we didn’t this year!

There are lots of old route master buses, doble deckers, old buses from the 50s and 60s and even an old bus from 1922.

We started viewing some old fire engines and an old Austin Mini, then moved onto the double decker.

Then we moved on to the old buses. There were some great design with intricate details and style, and some were quite streamlined and on was very old, 1922!

its definitely a great place to visit if you like old vechicles or if you have kids.

its in the diary for next year!

3 Photo Shoots, 6 Days

3 Photo Shoots, 6 Days

Last week was a busy week.

We had a phone call from a friend of a friend asking if it was possible to do a Hair Style photo shoot the next day. We could, so did! That was photo shoot was good fun and we got some great shots.

A couple of days later we had another photo shoot at Fawley Hill Steam Extravaganza, this was for The Flying Ducks. We had the challenge of photographing the 2 vans side by side, showing the vans, but also reflecting how busy the event was, but still see the vans in their all their glory. Lots of shoots, lots of angles, with people without people, then photographing our kids, with the ice creams from Sunshine. It was a hot day, so we had to work quite, but ended up with some great shots!

The final photo shoot was a couple of days later at The Packhouse in Farnham, photographing some of their many antiques for their newsletter. We spent a couple of hours there picking out and photographing items on their list. Its a great place to be and so many great things to photograph.

It was a busy 6 days, with interesting and varied photo shoots. Each one with its own challenge but all with great results and happy customers!

Here are a couple of photos from the Hair shoot.

Lots of old bits and pieces have been arriving in the post over the last few weeks and I think we have them all now!

I have old maps, candle holder, book, reading glasses, corks and a very old monocular. So all that remains is to start taking the photos that I have envisioned in my head! That’s the tricky part!

So over the coming weeks watch this space, blog!
