Yesterday I was in Brighton, “covering” – as we photographers say – the Brightona motorbike show. I was there for the scooters, specifically to photograph as many of them as possible in front of a certain gallery. These events being what they are, it was an exercise in rumour (“500 scooters on their way right now from Aldershot”) and herding cats. Photographing scooters inevitably involves lots of crawling around on the floor, and I’m walking like i’ve got wooden legs today. Anyway, once the Money Shot was in the bag (or in the memory card, anyway) I was free to roam. Never seen so many Harleys. Nice bikes. If you’re a girl.

    >I really think scooters have evolved into artworks…perhaps they always were, some of the customising is so good!What a great selection of photos, Wheels!

    >Thanks Affer. The 'skelly' (with the bloke in the red shirt) was a standout for me – 1970s unrestored timewarp. Even had a Slade badge on the seat!
