I have put some photos from today in this Photobucket Album and a slideshow that may need Flash. Not the best of photos as the lighting was not ideal but better than nothing.

I would also be interested in a caption for what these two Judges were thinking about the three models infront of themsmile p

Funny enough that is what the Judge on the right of the photo has in his hand and it got plenty of use!

"I've seen some c...y exhibitions in my time , but this has to be the worse. "

or how about:-

"Shall we award a prize for the bloke who manages to actually find all the exhibits in this shambles ?"

Hi, I think the one on the right is saying, "I seem to recognise this entrants name, but I can't recall where." to which the one on the left replies, "yes! didn't he become an editor of some workshop magazine or other?" sarcastic

Regards Nick.

Caption?

"We better say something nice other wise we'll be out of a job"

PS I wouldn't say it was dark in there but these two were using a torch to do the judging !

Thanks for the photos, Jason ... Some lovely work there.

But what a shame that the exhibition thereof does not appear to do it justice.

... It reminds me of the 'Village Show'.

Imagine how much better it could be; with decent lighting, a few turntables, cameras and big TV screens.

P.S. ... The slideshow works fine on my new iPad

That might be a little modern for many of the elderly gentlemen who were there. I thought it fit really well with the whole shabby amateur atmosphere that Brooklands has.

I did have a good time, and was quite glad that there were so few traders tempting me with stuff I want but can't afford.

Excellent slide show and I will await the captions (slide show not picture) when pictures are published in the ME.

As for Rik's picture of the car (Railton Napier Special?) it must be "never mind the bumps and pot-holes".

Oh yes, the judges are discussing the weather (very wet, I am told).
