A few pics from under the graffiti bridge in St Neots today, I'm not the best photographer so technically they're not great but it's a good spot for some arty shots anyhow;

I know a few of the guys who work on those murals! Not bad snaps there Tony IMO thumbup
Think Andy took a couple of his V8S underneath there a while back too...
I only live round the corner from the bridge and have seen most of the designs they've put up over the past year or so. Really liking the rabbit holding the pocket watch at the moment! cool

Did I see you rumble through Ashwell at about 10 this morning?

I drove up there this morning as was headed to the shop for bread, took some close up photos (with my phone) of one of the pieces, great work there





My car is far too filthy at the moment to look any good against that backdrop, but have suggested Johnny take his S1000RR and get some shots with his decent (D200) camera.

My kids want to go over too. James I can walk there from the farm on the B645 can't I? I noticed there were a few dog walkers this morning over there, and where I always walk toward Grafham/The Ford I might take a walk that way instead with the kids - They could maybe ride their trials bike over there too for some photos... PH meet!

If any of you are heading over, do post and maybe we could pop over too... Especially AsboJohn, I know a few boys who are in love with your Morgan smile

It'll be an incentive to sort my car out.

I'm only five minutes away, and this was really spur of the moment, just wanted to see the 'Alice in Wonderland' based piece before it's covered - my car was so shameful against the decent work I couldn't bare to 'pose' it, just caught it in this picture, it doesn't look half as dirty as it is.



Post when you're going and me and Johnny will try and pop over with our BMWs if you fancy.

You sure can Sam, its just down the trail from that big metal barn along the 645 on the outskirts of your village. (I've been out that way tractor twitching quite a bit recently lol!) Nice shots of the art work BTW! cool
The road out toward Staploe/Lt Staughton is nice for a bit of a blast afterwards also...

I'm just round the corner off Monarch Road so its easy walking distance for me too, i'm more than happy to meet up with any PH'ers at the bridge for a bit of a photo session any time smile

It's a good location I keep meaning to use for shoots too, just haven't gotten round to doing it yet, fairly quiet by all accounts too!

Very. I'm always a little self concsious when taking photos of my car at the side of the road but this really is a quiet spot, best to bump up on the kerb though as despite it being 30 through there some people really do let fly along that piece of road, especially coming out of SN towards Duloe.
