Taken at the Sandbach Transport Festival 2007. This is a small town but it's the home of a great british engineering firm, Fodens. Every year the town holds a small vintage transport festival and it's always very well attended. Well worth a look if you love old trucks, cars, bikes or steam engines. This year I took along a 100mm macro lens and shot with it exclusively. I only had about an hour and a half and I was aiming to capture recognisable details of the various vehicles on display without showing the whole thing. And it struck me that transport engineering is an important part of the heritage of not just my home town but towns and cities the world over. Detroit understands that.
