    Nicely spotted Gordon ... would have in London myself this weekend and joined you there but rush job kept me in Glasgow ... hope to get down in a couple of weeks and see the folks, etc ... might slide on over to your neck of the woods - ages since I've had a 'soft southern' pint and owe you a couple ;-)

    I was there today, nearly didn't go after a heavy night before, but glad I dragged myself out.

    I'm just processing some shots now, so hopefully will have some up tonight.

    I'm loving your 'Arty' shots gordon :smashin: Some of my images are along similar lines, I have a few of the ladies :rolleyes:

    So on Saturday I was in town and happened to drive down Park Lane and round Hyde Park Corner. I saw a large grass embankment beside a war memorial and wondered if you could go up on it. My thoughts were that the cars would have to drive down through the underpass or around the roundabout and either way I'd get a shot of them. So at 2.00pm yesteray I left the grid and headed in to St James park and took pics of Buck House area and tourists etc...then walked up to Hyde Park Corner. Got my spot and sat down with great view of road ahead....half an hour later a girl sat down beside me with her Ericson Sony phone camera...then some Italian tourists...then some Aussie lads...followed by some French guys....by 3.45 the place was rammed and some English lads decided to just walk in front of me and sit down directly in line of sight ofthe road....nice work....luckily they stayed sittign down and I could kneel and shoot over their heads.

    Here was a test shot....more of cars to follow once i've had a coffee.

    Looking forward to seeing your cars in motion shots Gordon :thumbsup:

    I met up with friends so I only stayed down at the main start area, I probably got about 3 or 4 useable shots :(

    I expected busy and I expected lot's people with cameras, but I didn't quite expected that much!! :eek: :D

    I have some more shots of people and cars to process yet, so i'll probably upload a few more tonight....

    Great shots there guys. I couldn't hack the crowds so found a decent perch on a bridge over the M20. There were hundreds of people lining the route. I'll post up a few pics later.

    No entirely sure how far the electric cars got...they went round Hyde Park Corner a few times and the crowds lapped it up.

    I've still got more Steve, just need time to work on them: It was fun. I was concerned I wouldn't get as many good shots as I did last year...but the reality was that I seem to have learnt alot in 12months...Gumball 06 was one of my first outings to an "Event" after all.

    I've got about 300 odd photos from Sunday, so I will try and go through them tomorrow when I get back from School. Have to say they aren't as good as the ones posted above, but hey I'm still learning with this camera.

    Was with one team for most of the afternoon, so will try and put a variety of images up.
