Wondered if anyone may shed some light on this. Yesterday, I was sitting in my fold up chair on Paddock Hill, panning pointlessly with the boys, cursing every time the shots went pear shaped, when I spotted a vested type, track side of the fence. He stood up on the wall, held his camera at arm’s length straight up and it had this weird lens on it. Obviously, it was round where it mounted to the body, but it looked like it had this chunky square plate on the end.
and he has confirmed via carrier pigeon (his internet is down) that he was using his elaborate filter gubbins at paddock, so it will have been him. And the shots are all rubbish he says. But I doubt it - his galleries are waiting in the wings so we’ll see shortly.
Yes I’m afraid that was me. I had spent the last half hour running about trying to hunt down images that conveyed the sun and the crowds. This was one of the last ones but as you can see it didn’t work out in the slightest! I remember it was very hurried, just banged it out while I was there. Oh the joy of digital! Now at least you can now see what I was shooting!
You can always tell if it’s one of the LB crew. If they are terribly ugly it’ll be Andrew, if incredibly handsome it’ll be me!
