Moment / Event. Always the first and last outdoor car boot sale of the summer. Queueing for the A3 in the dark and cold of an early autumn morning in a convoy of vans and cars all with their lights off and watching the tea wagon being opened up. Seeing the light spilling into the mist was like discovering a previously unseen Edward Hopper painting for the first time. Swiftly followed by birdsong. Life does not get much better than that.
