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;
Did I see you rumble through Ashwell at about 10 this morning?
Sorry just seen this. Presume you mean Ashwell in Herts? If so then not me, plus I was in the middle of cleaning her at that time. I did however, have a 100 mile run that afternoon around Bedford.

That looks an excellent location. Going to have to give the impreza a bit of TLC then pop up. St Neots is only a few miles from me.

They are fantastic murals. Much better than when google went through http://maps.google.com/maps?q=Duloe+Road+in+Eaton+...

I'll have to see about getting the Lambo up there!

Is it a busy road? as I note the cars are parked sensibly.

plus I think my ruffian evo would look well suited with graffiti behind if I wandered over that way.

It's reasonably quiet, certainly quiet enough to park up and not worry about holding people up.

I don't want to park by the side of the road.

Guessing early morning for it to be quiet enough to put the car in the middle of the road?

Nice photos James. Some new artwork there this week too.

I was wondering about these photos, is there any chance some whiz could photoshop out the kerbs? - would that look odd? Just a shame you have to park up on the path. I don't have the facilities to edit the pics, but thought it might work.

Here are my pics from early o'clock this morning.

My biggest problem (apart from lack of photography skill) was the sun. I think you need a cloudy day for a more even light.







(point and shoot camera)

Thanks Zippee for the location heads up.

Thanks Sam smile

Yeah i noticed that they had started a new piece on the edge of the right hand wall. Wonder what they'll come up with there...
Was nice and quiet down there yesterday evening, only a few cars passed through, all at sensible speeds thankfully.
Had a particularly nice effect with the sun going down out towards Duloe also, made the snaps a bit more scenic/moody i felt.

Nicol@, nice snaps of the Evo there!

Nicol@, the light is better in the afternoon I think, when the sun moves over the road.

Hopefully going to go over tomorrow with Johnny and the S1000RR.

In the meantime, It would transpire that several of the artists also like their cars...

And I've just put in a cheeky request wink after having a chat to a friendly chap with a nice Impreza WRX-sti.

The 'Wonderland' piece is staying for a while, but keep your eye on this, maybe, if we're lucky, there might be something in our honour, kind of. Perhaps PH might even write us a nice feature...

Keep up the good work chaps.

It's a great spot but I don't think it's suited for bikes, they're getting a little lost against the wall!

Still aiming to do a shoot there sometime though, need a suitable car and a suitable time!
