My ride mid 80's to early 90's

Found these images of the Vespa PX200E I owned when I was traveling around Scotland. But for this little beast I would have missed out on several adventures and hundreds of images of the Scottish highlands.

These images were taken in '91 I think, another country cottage in Scotland. Still can't believed I travelled over 400 miles in less than a day on 'Winona'. What I do recall is a very sore arse before I reached my destination!

Yet more images from Applecross in the early 90's

A few more images from a very memorable holiday. I'll leave it to your imagination as to where we stayed, it's in one of the images ;)

Okay, we stayed here, not far from the 'ruins'.

Boadacea - London, Feb '88

Boy, did I get around a bit in the late 80's?

East Park, Hull, April '88

Some more images, going back the best part of two decades, frightening thought. East Park is very different now, although I suspect these images were taken before it fell into neglect and since the face lift it looks very different, especially around the 'rockery'.

This tower, once apart of the city's defensive wall has been moved, used to play in and around it as a nipper.


More views of Applecross

I'm getting used to using my scanner gizmo now. Some more images taken in the early 90's that hopefully, give the viewer an idea of the feeling of isolation I felt at Applecross. Not that it was a bad thing at the time.

I thoroughly enjoyed the week I spent here with my family. The cottage was isolated, but not devoid of surprises. One night we heard strange noises. We grabbed a torch and found to our surprise that the house was surrounded by deer (their eyes acting like 'cat's eyes' on the road side). Normally, unless you travel in the early morning, you don't see these very shy creatures.

View from Applecross

This image was taken early 90's during a family holiday to Applecross in Scotland. This shot was taken only a few hundred yards from the cottage we were staying in, which was 6 or 7 miles from the nearest village. It was late on, and really was as atmospheric a view as I can remember. Some very happy memories.

I have been a little remiss.....

......but I've been busy of late, not had much chance to 'snap' away. Hopefully, I'll be posting a few images I captured in the 80's with my Canon T70 and around 2000 with an APS. I acquired, by way of a Crimbo present a photo quality printer / scanner. Once it's set up I'll be experimenting.

The Day After........ Christmas

Cottingham Railway Station. It was eerily silent save for the taxi rank round the corner.
