Unaccustomed as I am to public appearances, I asked my body double to stand in and he got to hold my camera too! Sorry about the knees!



David Brown Photogra… on September 12, 2009

Aye, the knees are about as nobbly as mine. But do they still work? That is the most important thing William.

I like the camper, I dream of one. Maybe reality soon.

Glad to meet you..... Jethro and his body double

Ah, the camper van! The knees are fine -- they look as though they are accustomed to being out, unlike so many pommy weedy white knees, your knees are outdoorsy sort of knees, William, you have nothing to fear.

One of my sisters had a VW camper van called Blue bell. She had another one as well, and if I remember rightly, it fell off the ramp when it was in being repaired. If I knew the name of the place it was at, I would warn you not to take your van there, just in case!

Nice to see you, William, I was just having a little look at Woburn and admiring your photos of there again. I was trying to have a good look at the gargoyles on the top of St. Mary's church. If you are ever going past there in a balloon, perhaps you could descend a few hundred feet and take a close up of them, please? I used to love those little fellows...

All the best,

Ah William, so you too have succumbed to this fame gallery. Glad to see the camera and campervan in view. I won't mention the knees! Glad to see the man behind the camera all the same. Cheers, Herb

Nice to see you William, you have very beautiful photos into your gallery!!!

Best regards, Andreas.

Hey Herb - this self-revealing habit is a bit difficult, but I thought I'd give it a go - kness or no knees! Cheers, William

Nice to meet you, William! Greetings from Germany

Sue - I will make it my mission to go and photgraph the gargoyles - and I'll avoid ramps. I took Lucy in for a service and when she came back from her test drive she was leaking petrol all over the place, poor old girl! The first fire extinguisher the mechanic grabbed was empty but luckily the second was OK - otherwise I fear hot exhaust an petrol would have turned into Cinderella... all the best to you too William

Sue Allen on November 23, 2009

Brilliant! Thank you so much, William!

Very glad to hear Lucy wasn't burned to a crisp. One of my offspring wants a VW beetle when she gets her license...a blue one, to be precise. She has only two more years to wait, and in the meantime, she's collecting model ones instead. VWs have such character, don't they? :)

Thanks again for bearing the gargoyles in mind. I really look forward to seeing them again. It's so strange to be on the other side of the world from all these things I used to look at week in, week out and now can't exactly 'pop over' there to refresh my memory. You are a knight in shining celluloid armour, William! (Well, ok then, digital armour, but tee hee, you get the picture...)

Bye bye for now, sleep time over here.


William Stephens on December 1, 2009

So far no gargoyles Sue! I have driven past a few times and keep thinking that I need to 1) stop; and 2)bring my camera (Or is it the other way round?). Bye WIlliam

Nice camper William, were you staying on steeple Lease farm ?


William Stephens on February 27, 2013

Thanks Don - she has green and blue bellows now! The GPS position is accurate - it was the farm due South of where the photo was taken. Most people had driven through the farm to the fields below that are quite sheltered. Must go back some time! Cheers, William
