But not for everyone. Not for the wonderfully eccentric Alex who decided that this is the perfect time to go shopping and put that work on hold for a moment. In fact slightly longer than a moment and in fact slightly more than just a shopping trip. He bought a VW campervan. The van's name is Hugo Grotius.
Work? What work? Let's go for a riiiiide.
Alex bought it as a project to fix up for the summer with the vision of spending the months driving around the country, picking up friends, acquaintances, hitch-hikers, sheep? along the way & generally enjoying some carefree banter with a super sweet four wheel drive.
It's still in early days of it's re-vamp, but I'm confident that when it hits the road properly it's going to look more dapper than a brand new Rolls-Royace.
I'll be joining the adventure in late June for it's first festival trip - HUGO GOES TO GLASTO! And then in early August I join the fun again for the Big Chill festival.
I'm not suggesting these photographs pose a need for concern, I just felt it would be unkind to miss photographing some of Hugo's more subtle elements.
