(alternative caption: caught some bloke stealing my wheels!)
leaky tyre on the way to Calais. Just drove all the way up this road yesterday afternoon on the way back from Shoot London, heading back the other way now in the truck, or, I was.
No spare wheel hanging under the trailer, had to call these guys out. Jeeze they know their stuff, took two hours to get here but had it all sorted within 15 minutes.
I'm going to stay here now, head on to Calais early in the morning, I'm a hundred miles out, shouldn't be any "undesirable characters" wandering about out there tonight.

Euphro made a great set of images and prompted me to make a movie from them.
Well, here it is.

The brief was for 134 teams to hit the streets shooting, each armed with four different fragments of a story so that when we all returned they could compile a slide show of the resulting 436 images, narrated by the story.
Our fragments were (from top to bottom);
1. "his tears"
2. "she bit his lip"
3. "would you mind"
4. "they grabbed"

Yes! managed to snap Filbert Fox before we parted company for this evening.
She was having none of it but I insisted.
Met up with Baggie-Boy & FF for a spot of dinner and a few jars tonight.
FF was drinking coke, when she wasn't throwing it over Cor.

Cor, Fran, Anja & me on the "P&O; Pride of somewhere over the rainbow" just leaving the lovely Calais.
Should be in our London pad by about four.

Parked on "Diggles" truckstop tonight (scrappy bit of waste ground with a fence around it and a porta-cabin) in Trafford Park, Manchester.
Right next door to the War museum.
Got here and hour before they shut so had a wander around in there. Impressive building, that's for sure, but I kind of got the feeling it was more about the building than the contents. The displays were "arty", lots of sound & light to augment the artifacts. Loads of space, high ceilings, one Harrier Jump-Jet and an old tank.
Not at all like the London version that's stuffed full of exhibits, perhaps they could lend them some, maybe they already have.
Left the D80 in the truck, smuggled the N96 in.
