Embarrassing photos



Being a considerate sort of woman, I always try and stop and take photos of Land Rovers for Land Rover Obsessed Partner to see.

Naturally there are lots in Gibraltar. Usually with an MOD reg.

So I took a couple of snaps as I was walking towards the frontier.

"WOULD PEDESTRIANS KEEP WALKING AND NOT STOP ON THE RUNWAY," bellowed the loudspeaker.

I looked round. I couldn't see anyone else not walking. Perhaps they meant me. I tried to look nonchalant. Bit difficult in the circumstances.

A guy waiting at the gate grinned and said "You're OK now." Maybe they were talking to me. It was only a brief pause to zoom in on the Landy. And I was hardly straggling at the back.

I stayed and took photos of the plane that was due to take off (hence the rush to get rid of the pedestrians....). Thought I might as well make the most of the embarrassing incident.

My daddy Len is a pilot and he took a bunch of pictures of the Gibralter runway. So interesting that they shut the road down when a plane was taking off or landing!
