Cute Lotus

Okay before the balloon, the crazy stunt riders and the horses I want to mention.... the cars! Yes, they were sweet! I have a thing for certain cars, Lotus is one of them in various versions. And there were some Ferraris that were pretty neat to, and of course the gangster car that was so low to the ground that you couldn't squeeze a deck of cards under it. Living in my street with lots of high speed bumps that car would look like it had been on a giant cheese grater after a few trips....

Okay so except for the classic cars and foxy cars there were some special ones, like Kitt the nightrider car and the Back to the Future car (I love those good old classics). Then of course there were the balloons, but since it had been raining the day before a lot of them weren't up until later in the day because they needed to dry :(  Stalls in abundance and good fun to go through, most interesting I think was the can models of planes, motorcycles, hats, bags and a hot air balloon made from Carlsberg cans (which is, of course Danish) so I had to take a picture of that.

Then there was the extreme bikers. Well if I could rename them I would fit better with 'the cheeky bikers... they made more fun than anything else which was a great laugh. My favorite was the one where one of the guys landed across the presenter very close to something I think most men don't want squeezed by heavy machine ;)

Also I think I have had my yearly dose of knights and jousting as there were also some here (as last weekend where I was at Warwick Castle, may I just say that they were undisputebly the best). And I can watch that again and again, just because the horses/gear does so well in photography (well I think so anyways, I grew up with horses, and no I haven't been raised by them ;). Speaking of animals (well of some sort) I tried to win a tigger by shooting hoops, only had to get two out of four in to win. I missed the first two but the second two was rolling on the egde but then fell off, I say CHEATING, the hoops were oval, I tell you, I'm usually good at getting it to roll inwards.... argh... hee hee. Anyways, it was a great day out!
