Known by many different names in different parts of the world but here in Thailand they are called Tuk-tuks and here I managed to avoid being noticed by the drivers long enough to get a shot of them parked up along the road. They are a unique way to see the city and yesterday I took my first ride in one. I think every photo that I took on board is extremely blurry, probably because of the lack of any kind of sides to stop my camera bag rolling off into the road whilst we turn around corners. Still it was great fun!
When I visited Barcelona I heard great things about the tourist buses and purchased a three day ticket. With this I could go to all the major attractions, hopping on and off when I wanted. They also provided headphones to plug in and listen to the English commentary on what we were seeing from the bus. Sitting on the back of one bus I was able to get this image of the bus behind me as we turned into a roundabout.
Trillo’s Ice Cream Van was photograph at near Whitby Pavilion on the West Cliff area of the town. With lovely grasses areas and benches to sit a watch the world go by it is no wonder that on a sunny day like this I came across an ice cream van. To the right off camera are some fantastic views across the harbour to Whitby Abbey. As you can see the other side of the ice cream van is a path down Whitby beach and the sea beyond.
This is a Renault 106-54 TL Tractor that was photographed a few years ago next to the car park of the Westmorland Hotel at Tebay’s M6 motorway services. I thought that the tractor really stood out on the green grass base with the deep blue of the clear sky in the background. There was a street lamp just to the right of the tractor that I ended up cloning out using Photoshop as I found it extremely distracting and it didn’t add anything to the final image.
