Just sitting at a table in a KFC restaurant when this truck drew up outside ~ got one frame before it moved off

This was an award winning slide which I won first prize in a national magazine ~ The £1000 prize bought me my first digital camera

*“This shot was taken in South Beach, Florida, from the inside of a Kentucky Fried Chicken restaurant.

I was having a spot of lunch and my Nikon F100 was sat on the table. I saw this fantastic red truck ~ a cement mixer ~ grabbed my camera and managed to shoot one exposure before it moved off.

I used a 35mm lens with a polariser and Fuji Sensia film and it was handheld and I relied on Matrix metering and the autofocus facility.”*

    Ooooooooooo, Aaaaahhhhhhhhh…..You must have been so thrilled to have found that!! Great eye…love the red!!

  • Indeed I was just tucking into a KFC chicken meal (and had not got a decent capture all morning) when the red truck stopped at the traffic lights;

    red is the natural colour as this was a colour transparency
