At the Goodwood Revival Meeting

I am a very lucky boy. I have been fortunate enough to have been invited to the Goodwood Revival twice now. This year was even busier than in 2009 and it was a beautiful day.

Something like 75% of people attending dress up in vintage clothes as the event celebrates Goodwood’s motor racing heritage, which ran from 1948 – 1966. Only cars from that era are allowed to take part too, but that does cover a wonderful period in car manufacturing and there are some fabulous sights.

I used my Leica M2 from 1960 and a 50mm Leica Summicron lens from 1963. Both of which are working perfectly, I am pleased to say.

Maybe, if I were to buy a new camera (as I have been thinking about…) it should be a Monochrom. Maybe…
