R.I.P. The Monster
With regret I must report that my beloved 1993 Toyota Hi-Lux (a.k.a. The Monster) was stolen from outside my flat in Bethnal Green last night. Painful to comprehend that all the hard-work building the bed, heater, stove and electricity systems are succumbing to a blow-torch in the Docklands before being shipped in pieces to West Africa. All of the best and most remote locations from my Scotland project were accessed and made homely thanks to her even in 2 foot of snow. 70 mph on the motorway was admittedly scary but trusting the engine would start first-turn in -25C and get back to civilization after a night of photography was amazing. The monster will be missed but will be replaced by something just as good (with an immobiliser).
