Late entry for Cee’s Midweek Madness Challenge. I have two colours that might be considered favourites. Conveniently, both are represented by the kit worn by Wingate & Finchley FC this season…

…Blue is the home kit and Red is for away matches. My love of Blue probably stems from my love of trains and the many years of trainspotting in the British Railways era. Here’s 45062 in Rail Blue livery at Newport…

…I guess London’s buses are the reason behind the Red. Here’s Metroline’s TE939 parked in the turn-around at East Finchley station…

These preferred colours are reflected in my choice of liveries in the Truck Simulator games. In Euro Truck Martin Transport et Logistique vehicles wear Blue…

…while in American Truck, Republik Plant trucks wear Red…

It’s Midweek Madness Challenge time and Cee has presented us with a photo and suggested some topics. I’ll start with a couple of older images from my archive and then three recent shots 🙂

Mother and Daughter…

Mother and Son, with Roman Bricks…

A tall brick wall on Lovers Walk…

A hint of Red…

And a Purple Figaro…

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 😉

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 🙂

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 😉 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 😉

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.
