The Wadworth Shires (Monday 15th August 2016)
The Wadworth Shires were into the second and final week of their camping holiday, and as I'd been given special permission to go and see them I drove over to Bulkington to pay them a visit.
They were some distance away, sheltering under a shady tree when I arrived and when they saw me Max and Monty drifted further away, but after several minutes Archie came over to see me followed later on by the others. Max and Monty both let me stroke them but Archie wasn't quite bold enough, approaching my hand but pulling away at the last moment. The blip shows Monty on the left, Archie centre and Max, without the fly guard, on the right. After awhile they returned to the shade and I didn't blame them as I was suffering in the heat too. It was great to see them and spend time with them and I may pop over again before they go back to the brewery stables.
I prepared a mono version (see Extras) as it was a Monday but decided I preferred the colour option.

Hawkwind - Right To Decide (1992)
Electric Tepee is the seventeenth studio album by the English space rock group Hawkwind, released in 1992. It spent one week on the UK albums chart at #53.
After a European tour in March and April 1991, long-standing keyboardist Harvey Bainbridge chose to leave the group. Female singer Bridget Wishart would also end her association with the group in September. The group would go on to operate as a three piece of guitarist Dave Brock, bassist Alan Davey and drummer Richard Chadwick, making heavy use of sequencers, synthesisers and computers, both in the studio and live.
The album was recorded in 1992 at Brock's own Earth Studios, produced with Paul Cobbold. - Hawkwind Fan, You Tube
