Weight and Stuff Report – 25 July 2010

A minor adjustment today.

As you’ll see from another post, today’s fun was the Sunderland International Airshow, which involved the traditional slow walk[1] from the Metro to the sea front, where I managed to arrive early enough to get a place at the front and set up my new[2] folding chair[3], a fair bit of waiting, a lot of holding my big lens, a slower walk back to the Metro, and a bit of a wait to be herded on to a train. All good fun.

Today’s picture is a bit of the ground level fun of the show – this guy was filming the show for a DVD which you could order on the day. Since he was looking in my general direction, presumably for some crowd shots, I thought I’d return the favour.

Watching you, watching me

Watching you, watching me

[1] Not that I was trying to walk slowly, it was the thousands of people in front of me. Managed to pass quite a lot of them.
[2] And remarkably cheap – £6.99 from Argos, and actually quite comfortable
[3] Decided that the knees and ankles might have moaned if I’d done the standing thing this year. And it made it easier to read for the couple of hours I had to wait for the actual show to begin
