Red – Time for a Ferrari? I didn’t have one to hand. I thought about doing red peppers but Cee has that covered in her post! So here’s a mix of Football and Transport – but no London Bus šŸ˜‰

Taken a couple of weeks back, here is much liked and respected ‘enemy for 90 minutes’ Mark Kirby…

…Mark has played for a number of local football clubs in North London, but never Wingate and Finchley. He’s currently with Chesham United but is carrying an injury, so had to sit out our recent friendly match. Outside of football, he’s a Teacher šŸ™‚

Flashback in time to 1980 and a shot of a Warrington Corporation bus…

…Vehicle no. 95 is a Bristol RE. These were commonly bodied by Eastern Coachworks but Warrington had chosen to go local and have the body built by East Lancs in Blackburn.

I may not have a Ferrari, but here’s a Fiat (Ferrari’s parent company) and it’s in the red of Telecom Italia…

…Photographed in the Santa Sabina suburb of Rome.

As luck would have it, yesterday evening I was doing the annual team photos for Wingate & Finchley. We’re keeping the previous season’s home kit – it had not been used much and our sponsor, Roger’s Removals, was unchanged – see what I did there? a bonus red šŸ˜‰ Anyway, we do have a new Away kit and it’s red…

…The Arsenal fans are gonna love it, the Tottenham fans will hate it because it looks like an Arsenal shirt. The photographer will probably dislike it because red often causes issues for camera sensors in bright sunlight šŸ˜‰

Lets finish with some blue skies and water…

…and an emergency vehicle of the Sapeurs-Pompiers – this belongs to one of their underwater rescue teams (Plongeurs = Divers) and was photographed in Canet-en-Roussillon.

You can catch up with Cee’s Midweek Madness Challenge Here.

Here is my entry for Brian’s Last on the Card Challenge.

This first shot was taken with the Canon EOS5D mkIII on 31st of July at a pre-season friendly game between Wingate & Finchley FC and Chesham united FC…

…It became the last shot on the card because the rain that you can see in the photo suddenly became a lot heavier and I didn’t see much point in getting myself and the camera soaked for shots of a friendly match.

This second shot was taken before the match on the Fujifilm X-Pro2 and shows a plaque mounted on the wall of the main stand at the ground…

…It lists the names of all the supporters and friends of the club that donated money to help the club stay solvent during the first COVID-19 lockdown. The plaque is straight – my hand holding is not šŸ˜‰

Both shots have been resized for the web but no other adjustments have been made.

It’s Done! I have completed the Pathfinder achievement for Euro Truck Simulator 2 šŸ™‚ I estimated, based on the progress between July 4th and August 5th, that it would take me another 2 weeks to finish the final 2.25% that was outstanding. But shelving almost all my blogging to concentrate on the driving produced a good amount of additional time and I really knuckled down to getting it done!

Here’s the map – it doesn’t zoom out far enough to show the whole of the area…

…You can see it says 100% in the top left. Below is a screenshot of the game page on Steam that shows the Pathfinder achievement and the fact that I have now completed all of the available achievements…

…That is, until the next dlc releases šŸ˜‰ ā€¦

The last truck used to carry me over the line was this Iveco Stralis and we covered 14858km during the last three days…

…roughly 20 hours of game time – I did say that this achievement required a lot of work! Now I can concentrate on building my company in the other profile and just driving for fun in this one šŸ™‚ I have also split my profiles in American truck Simulator, so expect some updates from there soon.

Job done early means that I can return to blogging and I will be doing a normal post tomorrow evening. Til then, Keep the shiny side up! šŸ™‚
