August was not a great month for photographs. I had an issue with my left foot – probably brought on by too much driving of the old Mack truck in American Truck Simulator! My usual excuse for going out, trainspotting – was disrupted by industrial action. The upshot is that last month, only the Canon 5D mkIII saw any use and as a result there is only one photo for Brian’s Last on the card challenge 😦

Of course, if there’s one thing I was always going to photo it was the football. The last shot for August was taken on the 29th when Wingate & Finchley visited Haringey Borough…

…This is just about the last kick of the game. A Haringey defender, hidden by our 5 and 11, clears an intercepted pass and at that point the Ref blew the final whistle. It was a scrappy game ending 0-0. We did actually get the ball in the net but the assistant ruled it off-side. All I can say looking back at the photos is that it must have been very tight. I think Freddie may have been robbed of a perfectly good goal and Wingate & Finchley of 2 points! – Ho humm…

Time to catch up with Cee’s Midweek Madness Challenge and Cee want’s an ‘N’ in the middle of the word – does typing ‘Madness’ count? 😉

Let’s start with Manager…

Wingate & Finchley 1 vs Hornchurch 1 (FA Trophy 2021/22)

…Wingate and Finchley’s manager to be precise. He’s much nicer than this image might suggest – sometimes you just have to shout at the players 😉

The Concourse…

Concourse Campers

…at St. Pancras

Here’s a Bennett’s truck…

Bennetts RX17DHA A406 Finchley

…And it’s a Renault 😅

Finally, a long word with lots of ‘N’s in the middle…

N13066 of Continental at Gatwick, 1989

…Continental 👍 According to the records that’s a McDonnell-Douglas DC-10-30 owned by Provident Bank of Cincinnati… Amazing how many ‘N’s you can find when you look 😂

Thanks for the fun challenge Cee 😎👍

The start of a new month and time to display my Last on Card photos for Brian’s challenge.

Let’s start with the Moto g50. This shot was taken for one of my Nuts & Bolts posts to illustrate my method of recording which parts on an engine need replacing with new…

…Apart from a change of name for this post, you can’t tell the difference as all I did for the original post was resize for web!

Now the Canon EOS5d mkIII…

Last on Card JUL22_EOS5D

…Taken at our pre-season friendly against Coggeshall Town on 16th July – the game ended in a 1-1 draw. It was my last match for a while. On the 19th I deemed it too hot to attend – the temperature reached 40.3C that afternoon, which is outside the camera’s official operating window (as well as mine)! Then on Thursday 21st I went down with what turned out to be covid. Now I’m hoping to be fit to do the Team Photos on August 11th🤞🏻

To finish, here’s a shot taken with the Fuji X-Pro2…

…The Pigeons living it large in our bird bath!

As usual just a resize for the web and no other changes.
