I was an idiot today i had the great idea of packing all my camera gear except the battery for my camera!! and i really wanted to get decent shots of the Cat.

When i was walking down when she was about to go up i passed a guy with a load of Canon gear so sort of cheeky asked if he had a spare i could borrow for the display (if you don't ask you dont know) and he said yes so was really happy about that and could do my farewell picture :)


If you are on here then indeed Thank You :)

Even on a small image like that, it appears to be a dead stick landing? ; )

I like it. couldn't make the show myself which is a bummer as it is the last one, and my Father was based there in the 50's too.

Nice that a fellow photog shared his batt with you too :)
