    I met up with Jomike and Paulie-W at the Bromley Motor Pageant yesterday. Fantastic weather and some very impressive cars and motor bikes. Of course all the sun made life a bit tricky with all the shining chrome etc :rolleyes:

    Here is a sample of some vintage hood ornaments and makers' badges -

    Hi John,

    very nice, always good to see the badges on old cars, for the chrome it might be an idea to get a CPL filter as that will reduce the glare.

    What, like the one I left at home? :( TBH I have stopped carrying the filter because I found I was using it so rarely - after all they only work when you are at the right angle to the sun.

    Glad you like the shots :).

    Thanks Tezza, but I have to admit it was Paulie-W that pointed out the shot to me. :cool:
