SALUTE 2012 is over but IMHO it was a huge success. The South London Warlords did an excellent job on their 40th anniversary show and I have to say this years Salute Figure is stunning. As usual I shot hundreds of pictures, spent loads of money and met lots of new friends. My Photo Report of this years show will therefore be done in several parts over the next few days because I'd like to get as many pictures displayed here on BLMA as possible, not just my usual slideshow (although I will do that as well). In the meantime here's a compilation video I have put together including some of my video and pictures.
Sadly I missed last years event but that made this years show all the more enjoyable for me. I went with my usual 'wingman' - my brother-in-law Ray - plus my eldest daughter who is also a Salute veteran of many a year. Posties Rejects were also in attendance and we got together in the afternoon to say hello to fellow Bloggers, adoring fans and, in Fran's case, a few stalkers! Boy am I tired - my feet are killing me - but I was determined to get pictures and video up immediately. I hope you enjoy the video, pictures will follow in a day or two!
Great vid! I think I saw you filming this lol, and kudos on such a rapid turnaround. A fantastic day, I concur, despite it being my first.ReplyDelete
It;s taken longer to upload than it did to put together! Technology will be the death of me!!ReplyDelete
