‘New Beginnings’ always reminds me of a gag from the criminally underrated 1996 Farrelly brothers movie, Kingpin. Useless info aside, this overly compressed JPG is a step back in time to the image that started it all – my first keeper on my first trip out with a mighty 6MP DSLR camera.

By the time I took this photo Concorde had been out of service for around three and a half years. One remained on display at Manchester airport and, with favourable low clouds and winter sun, it was possible to make that iconic nose appear as free as a bird once again.
