- University Challenge team member 1975 (recorded) / 1976 (transmitted). 3 rounds won: knocked out by that year's tournament winning team. I know I answered at least one question correctly myself, though that might have been in the practice round...memories fade.
I have been photographing cars, in less hectic periods of my life, for more than 40 years. There have been those who have found the habit eccentric or worse. Opportunities presented by Wikipedia induced me to rediscover the addiction with renewed vigo(u)r. The pictures of cars I have uploaded to Wikipedia are uploaded either because I think they are good pictures or because - at least when I uploaded the picture in question - they were "better" than any existing pictures of the car in question on Wikipedia. "Better" here is, of course, in large part a subjective judgement. Naturally I try and take pictures the way I like them: who wouldn't? But lighting conditions and surrounding streetscapes do not always cooperate.
