I’ve photographed all sorts of cars, over the past 20 years or so, everything from Jaguars to Hyundais, Renaults to Fords, Landrovers to Toyotas. For the first time last week I had opportunity to photograph a Nissan Nismo – a car I’d never even heard of until now. Here’s the main image…
If you are fortunate enough to ever visit Belfast, Northern Ireland, you can get around the city easily and quickly on a ‘Belfast Bike.’ Download an app, pay a small fee, and borrow a bike! Take it from one side of the city to the other, and park it at the nearest bike-park! Easy!
