Not a lot to add to this, but a nice shot of a nice scoot. By Keith Nairn, on Flickr, his photostream is worth checking out if you, like me, like classic bikes (some nice Laverdas for instance) and other mechanical ‘boys toys’.

Just a girl on a Lambretta
Phew, I was getting a bit panicky there. The last post didn’t include a single Lambretta. So here’s a nice pic of a nice girl on a nice Lammie. Which is nice.
It’s an image by famous French photographer Jean-Francois Jonvelle. Here’s his website.
I’ve feature the work of Paul “Woodsy” Wood a couple of times before… videos of both EuroLambretta and the LCGB 60th Anniversary Rally at Shipson on Stour… but I’ve never featured his still images before. These days, everyone with a camera phone is “a photographer” …but not everybody has the eye. In my humble opinion Woodsy has… in bucket loads. What do you think?
Paul is from Manchester and rides with the Manchester Lyons SC. For more Woodsy; check out his website here, or his movies on YouTube or Vimeo.

It’s all about the composition…
Nicely set up shot by Adrian Hawkins of his lovely lammie “Lottie”, otherwise known as Crazy Banana. Taken at the Humber Bridge, (you can see a glimpse of it in the background) earlier this month. Via The Mod Generation site.
Lambretta and a London Bus…
Well, that’s what I thought when I first saw this pic… but that’s not a Lammie… too skinny a derriere for a Series 2… My guess would be an Agrati Capri… One of the few Lambretta & V*spa competitors that could hold a candle to them in the industrial design stakes.
Anyway, whatever the scooter, it’s a wonderful image, shot by davekpcv on Flickr.
For the Lambrettista, a work of art, not as obviously beautifully as the sinuous curve of a SX side-panel, or the voluptuous swell of a S2 headset, but pure sculpture none-the-less.
Reblogged from the Scooterist.
I’ve written about a scooter photographer before, Paul Hart, at Vespamore. His blog constantly features beautiful scooter imagery, a lot of it of V#spa’s though… oh well, you can’t have everything. Paul has recently published a book of his photography, which you can get hold of here. And of course, the other side of the channel is that talented frenchman Laurent Callot, whose work I’ve featured a couple of times.
Back in blighty, there’s a new kid on the block, and he’s giving Paul a run for his money. Domonic Hindle is a 17 year old student, with a penchant for scooters. Well, the whole mod lifestyle, the clothes and the music really, but mainly the scooters. And boy, can he take a decent snap. I reckon he’s got the eye of a scooterist too… focusing on what you really want to see, and bringing out things you’ve missed. As well as featuring on many blogs, Domonic’s work has featured on the Fred Perry and Rimini Lambretta websites.
If you’re a regular reader, you might recognise the rather lovely Series 1 in the top pick. It’s a scoot I featured in a post called ” Lovely Series 1” funnily enough. If you like the images I’ve posted, and if you read this blog, why wouldn’t you… you can order prints. Some of these shots would look fantastic on your wall, I bet!
Or why not book Dominic to take some classy shots of your pride and joy. If you’ve spent a fortune restoring a scoot, aren’t some quality images worth spending a few quid on?
