I am a sucker for black and white. Digital is great for black and white, film is sublime! I love nothing more than to shoot a roll of Kodak Tri-X or similar, develop it at home and scan it in.
Went over to Banbury last week to shoot a few classic cars which had gathered as part of an event for the Historique Rally Monte Carlo which was passing through Banbury.
Although the weather wasn’t the greatest, shooting colour film (Kodak Ultramax 400) gave me some really nice tones and images.
This beautiful Sunbeam caught my eye, probably as I like red cars!

Banbury hosts the Rally Monte-Carlo Historique entrants with a sideshow of classic and vintage cars around the market square.
I always think classic American cars look great when you see them in the UK. Their presence is undiminished and their size always makes them a crowd puller.
Easy to see why with this beautiful example of a Dodge isn’t it?!
Thought it would be fun to convert a few of the recent photographs from the Bicester Heritage Sunday Scramble to a square format.
Produced from 1965 through to 1969 model, the 912 is an entry-level variant of the 911 and quite possibly my favourite 911 derivative.
Probably the best looking Volvo ever made…
Bicester Heritage’s Sunday Scramble happened last weekend and all things considered an excellent day as it always seems to be.
Always fun when the first Bicester Heritage Sunday Scramble of the year comes around.
Batteries are charged, film in the old rangefinder and I’m really looking forward to getting back to the Heritage Centre and seeing some classics, old & new.
One of my all time favourite cars, the Lotus Talbot Sunbeam was the car of my dreams when I was just a kid and seeing one last year at a meeting at Bicester Heritage transported me back to those days.
I should have taken a few more photographs of it or sought out the owner for a chinwag about it, but I didn’t. Hopefully I’ll see it another time sometime soon.
