The Not So mini MINI
I was out and about with Gail this afternoon. Firstly we went over to see a friend of mine called Amy. She is also a keen photographer and has converted her garage into a studio. We were interested to know what she had done with the space and what equipment she had bought. It was a good space really and had bought some quality lights. Amy let me take a few photos of Gail posing, which won't be shown on here, as they are not brilliant and Gail would beat me up if I did!
Then Gail wanted to have a drive around in her MINI, as she hasn't really had the opportunity lately. So we went through the Park estate, and we looked at all the big houses. We then had a cruise down various roads, as Gail wanted to know where some led to. After a while, we ended up at our local Mini dealership. They were of course closed, but Gail was interested to know if there were any Countryman's on display in the forecourt. For those that don't know, the Countryman is a larger version of the MINI. It's like a small 4x4. There were a few to look at in different colours. I quite fancied the coffee coloured version, while Gail preferred the black one. Here is a photo of the Countryman, which the dealership are using for publicity purposes.
