A top team of walkers from MediaCom Leeds toppled the Yorkshire Three Peaks this weekend – I joined them for the middle peak; Whernside.

So proud of these guys, raising money for Yorkshire Air Ambulance – walking 25 miles in 11 hours and taking in these 3 beauties, as well as dragging me up the middle one – well done!

Empty office, Holbeck

A hedge full of ideas

What is an office without people?   Nothing much.

nothing to see here

I took my camera into the office today thinking I would take a walk around Holbeck Urban Village and capture scenes of industrial regeneration, street art and general trendiness; it never happened.

 Events overtook me, I got stuck doing some other stuff and, and then it was 6.00pm and the camera had never made it out of the bag.

Plan B, snap your surroundings out of context, the office with no workers.

I will revisit Holbeck at a later date, in the mean-time, here is an office without people.

2014 Le Mans, a real winner

I have linked in to my flickr file, some fun from 2007 – 2009, the early years of my pilgrimage. After a year off in 2010, we returned for back to back fun in 2011-2014, and of course we will be back in 2015, for all the fun of the fair.


Le Mans, June 2014 was a real winner of a trip this year. Sadly not for Porsche, but very much so for us, a bunch of car nuts who enjoy the recreational side of a fun camping weekend as much as the serious business of world endurance racing.

The highlights this year were probably Duncan’s amazing cigar smoking prowess, the crazy electric storm, downpour and carnage in the champagne tent only minutes into the race, and for me, the beautiful display of previous winning cars in the fantastic Porsche tent – sadly not to be joined by the 2014 919 Hybrid car which showed so much promise until the final few hours on Sunday.

As promised weeks ago, I have added some Porsche pictures from the archive, to remind us of what an epic weekend this truly was in 2014.

We come to the end of the year, and we look back at the special moments, Le Mans 2014 was certainly one of those!
