We got the stand up at Thorney despite strong winds which forced other traders to give up with cover, I caught the local service to Peterborough and got some nice interior footage and sounds on the way. Peterborough bus station echoes to the sounds of fairly constant bus movements, lots of cameras around but few people exchanged pleasantries which is a shame, only one person I talked to and was able to assist with my scant knowledge of the services connected to the rally. I managed to get a fair amount of Peterborough and enough for a DVD on that plus another on the ram,my cum running day which is what it really was. I rode to Whittlesea on a scheduled Judds bus, very pleasant people, shame they are going to cut back services to the core following licence revokes from the powers that be. A bouncy ride to Whittlesea captured for all to see, the weather as I said stayed dry sometimes even sunny.
The running day featured a pleasant mix of vehicles, the positioning of them for photography was spot on. After giving it a good bash I went back to Thorney on the shuttle service and had lunch with Mandy at the stand, a record breaking day of zero sales and nearly zero people about, mostly they got off the bus saw little about them, photographed the bus, got back on the next one. I went back to the rally again got more cab rides and scenes at the event bus station, caught up with some folk I knew and then we gave it all up about 3 pm and packed up and spent the rest of the afternoon keeping t minor roads exploring the Fenlands and eventually getting down to the A14 without hardly a touch of main highways. Lots of places we had never seen and then waited until my sister Susan and Graham arrived at the pub where we had a super catch up evening and then left for a very late drive back up north and we were pretty shattered when we got back. Friend Sue is joining us today, it is still miserable outside, I'm running off yesterdays footage and getting the two DVDs done, I've downloaded the DVD orders which are filling the table. Hits on Youtube adverts still down, its been a quiet week although DVD orders well up. A few more cine films arrived by post, one that has to be signed for, what a pain I wish they wouldnt send them like that its such a trek to the sorting office for Mandy.
So will leave you now with some picture from yesterday at Whittlesey
