Just for fun and answers underneath.

I've got 108 for you to have a go at. Will post in batches of 10 at a time.

Quality variable, depending on the gear used at the time... but that adds to the challenge of identifying some of them. šŸ¤­

Most taken in the UK, but watch out for a couple of Spanish ones.

1-10...

1






2




3




4




5




6




7




8






9




10



To be continued...
