When I was given the opportunity to pop over to Wales to spend a bit of time with one of the Welsh scenes best love characters Paul 'Sammy' Thomas I naturally jumped at the chance. Not only to spend a bit of time with the man himself and not only to spend a bit of time in my own Homeland (dad was from Haverdfordwest) and not only on the promise of coffee and cake but to have the opportunity to take photos of his beautiful steed, this stunning green and white Vespa Sportique 150. On a bit of a gloomy day it was a bit of a challenge to find a nice backdrop for the shoot but Paul came to the rescue and found a fantastic park local to where he lives. A quick recky and suitable spots were found complete with matching flowers courtesy of mother nature! 40 minutes later and the above photo shoot was complete and as you can see the shots came out lovely, showing the Sportique's beautiful lines and gleaming paint and chrome work, you can see why it's his pride and joy. It was definitely worth the trip into Wales and the coffee and cake wasn't too bad either............
